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

Latest News

Policy and Practice round-up October 2018

This month we bring you news of the RSC/Tate Time to Listen report on the impact of arts-rich schools; a House of Lords debate on music education; a £5m fund for youth performance networks; the Pisa 2021 test on creative thinking; a Frieze magazine article on the ‘extinction’ of arts in schools; a STEAM report from US National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine, and a DASER STEAM event.

Government and the Cultural and Creative Industries need to take a united and coherent approach that guarantees equal access for everyone to a rich cultural education and the opportunity to live a creative life. There are barriers and inequalities in Britain today that prevent this from being a universal human right. This is bad for business and bad for society.
