Arts Council England launches Cultural Education Challenge

The Arts Council has urged all those working in the arts and education industries to work together in offering a cultural education for all children and young people.

The Cultural Education Challenge was recently launched at the Barbican in London. It challenges sector leaders across the arts, education, local authorities, schools, higher education institutions and others to create new ways of working. It encourages them to share resources to create joined-up arts and cultural provisions locally, at a time when public funding remains under pressure.
