Curious Minds have developed an interactive digital map to help demonstrate to school leaders and policy-makers the vast scale of the creative and cultural education workforce which exists in our communities nationwide. The map will also make it easier for schools to identify and connect with their own local cultural learning resources and expertise, all of which they can tap into this summer.
