Croydon Local Cultural Education Partnership

A Local Cultural Education Partnership has been formed in Croydon, building on the work of the Creative Croydon programme

Our aims:

  • To celebrate, share and pass on our diverse cultural heritage
  • To enable children and young people to develop their cultural identity and their own artistic language
  • To contribute to their development and achievement
  • To enable children and young people to contribute to the cultural life of their communities and of Croydon

The journey so far:

We carried out two youth consultation studies which led to the formation the Croydon Youth Arts Collective (CYAC), a group of young arts ambassadors for the borough. We formed the Croydon Local Cultural Education Partnership in order to come up with ways to respond to what young people have been telling us.

CYAC are at the heart of the partnership and are a mechanism through which young people's wants and needs for cultural education can be voiced and shared.

Creative Croydon is steered by Croydon Music & Arts and the council’s Youth Engagement team.
