For Children & Young People

We are working together across Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire to ensure that the opportunity to participate, achieve and succeed in vibrant high-quality arts and cultural education becomes a normal expectation for children and young people.

Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire Cultural Education Partnership is a growing movement of arts organisations, educators, individuals, business and communities who collectively work together to ensure ALL children have access to high quality arts and culture. More and more people are advocating for arts in education, with real recognition that creative thinking is needed for an ever-changing jobs market, environmental challenges, community building, challenging divisions and supporting positive well-being.
