Connecting schools with Culture in North West England

Regional Culture in the North West
The Cultural Education Challenge asks art and cultural providers, schools and other local agencies to come together, 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.
