Welcome to our annual round-up for CLA activity.
In our 2019 round-up we predicted that 2020 would hold ‘upheavals for the arts and education sectors’. This now sounds like the understatement of the decade. The Covid-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the context in which we are working and will continue to do so in 2021.
The Cultural Learning Alliance (CLA) exists to champion a right to arts and culture for every child. To do this we need a vibrant workforce to deliver cultural learning. The CLA is asking freelancers and colleagues working in organisations to fill in this short survey about roles in cultural learning, contracts and redundancies.
This month we bring you news of a range of reports highlighting the impact of Covid on children experiencing disadvantage; new Covid guidance from government; how to get involved in the UNESCO Futures of Education initiative; STEAM activities; and ICYMI a DCMS report: the role of arts in improving health and wellbeing.
