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

Young people’s engagement with culture – the arts and heritage – really helps them to understand each other. It also helps all of us to create strong, vibrant communities, to celebrate places and spaces, to acknowledge our shared and different pasts, and to build great foundations for the future.
