The Cultural Learning Alliance champions a right to art and culture for every child

Latest News

Policy and practice round-up July 2018

This month we bring you news from Westminster including a new Culture Secretary and a House of Lords committee hearing on STEM and arts; Ofsted research on art; a draft Culture Strategy for Scotland; the Children’s commissioner 2018 report into Childhood Vulnerability; a new Artist in Residence programme; a teacher wellbeing case study; and birthday wishes for Action for Children’s Arts.

In a programme which serves families from a very wide range of backgrounds, including Looked After Children and their carers, we see time and again that cultural learning nurtures confidence, creativity and skill. Through being audience members, participants or creators of music, families learn and develop together.
