Who we are

The Manchester Cultural Education Partnership (MCEP)’s ambition is for children and young people from Manchester to have excellent access to meaningful, high quality cultural experiences. We will support the Education and Cultural sectors to work collaboratively to achieve this. Following the Kick Starter event on Tuesday 2nd April, MCEP groups will begin to meet over the Summer term and will be officially starting from Autumn 2019.

Strategy Plan

We will establish the vision, identify key priorities, get ideas off the ground and champion best practice to deliver our ambition. We are drawing members from schools, further and higher education, arts and culture, youth & play and business, as well as young people themselves, to be part of the Strategic and the Working Groups that will take this initiative forward.
