!! NEW PUBLICATION !!
The Black Country Cultural Education Directory, a joint initiative between the four Cultural Education Partnerships (CEPs); Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. Each CEP is formed of partners from across the arts, cultural, heritage and education sectors. They collectively work together to ensure that all children and young people aged 0 to 25 in their localities have access to high quality arts and culture. Each CEP is formed of partners who are activists in their local area who advocate for arts, culture and creativity in education. To ensure that every child and young person has a positive and empowering creative learning journey and the opportunity to create, participate, produce and engage with cultural education.
If you have a passion for arts, culture and education and are interested in joining a collective movement of change makers in your locality then contact your local CEP to become a member.
