Cultural Connections for Education Settings
in North West England

The Culture Hub is a free-to-use online portal for teachers, childcare providers and other professionals working with children and young people. It aims to help you take on the Cultural Education Challenge and by connecting you with the expertise and variety on offer within our region's rich and vibrant arts, culture and heritage sectors.


The Cultural Education Challenge

The Cultural Education Challenge is a call-to-action. It asks all education settings and cultural organisations to work together more effectively, in order to offer a consistently high-quality arts education to all children.

The Culture Hub is brought to you by Curious Minds, a charity working to drive access to creative and cultural education, by creating the conditions where quality, collaboration can flourish.

Regional Culture in the North West

The Cultural Education Challenge asks all art and cultural providers, education and childcare settings and other local agencies to come together and work in partnership, to drive a joined-up local cultural education offer for children and young people.

In many areas of the North West, local partnerships have already been established, bringing together passionate and committed people from a wide range of organisations - across heritage and culture, education, youth sector, local government and the creative industries - whose local knowledge and professional expertise is helping to drive forward the cultural education agenda and improve opportunities for children and young people.

Even in areas of the North West which do not yet have a formally established partnership, there’s still plenty of great cultural education work happening that you can connect with.

See what's happening in your local area by navigating the maps below or visit the Local Partnerships page.
