Event description
This series is designed to help you understand the ACE framework and embed Investment Principes into your organisation and activity for CYP.

About this event

Building on the Investment Principles laid out in Arts Council England’s Let’s Create 10 year strategy, our Principles into Practice series offers a chance for cultural educators to come together to share recent examples of excellent children and young people (CYP) practice and current insights.

The sessions will be a space to reflect on collective learnings: what are the current challenges, and where can we do better? We will also celebrate your successes and share widely your ambitious visions for the future.

Inclusion & Relevance

The second session in the series explores how your programme can better serve and become more reflective of our communities. Topics will include:

  • What can be done to disrupt the systemic challenges facing the sector?
  • What insights can be learned from educators about what schools need now?
  • What makes an outstanding blended learning offer?
  • How can hyperlocal partnerships lead to innovative collaboration in the sector?

Speakers to be announced!

During this session you will:

  • Consider how the ACE Investment Principles can shape your practice
  • Reflect on what your CYP offer currently looks like
  • Encounter fresh thinking about how it can be improved

These sessions are open to professionals working in cultural education, including freelance practitioners and programme managers, Creative Learning Directors and Producers, and CEOs. Those working in small, medium and large-scale cultural organisations, NPOs and LCEPs are all welcome.

Organiser A New Direction

Organiser of Principles into Practice: Inclusivity & Relevance

Please note: we endeavour to make all of our events accessible to all. All of our venues are wheelchair accessible. For further accessibility information please refer to the venue's website.

A New Direction is a London-based non-profit generating opportunities for children and young people to unlock their creativity.

Why does A New Direction exist?

London is one of the greatest creative hubs in the world. Every day, thousands of the children and young people who live here are inspired by the city’s culture to unleash their own creative side. They have the chance to develop their skills, talents and passions, becoming people who can thrive in a challenging, changing world and boost our wider society.

But there are also thousands of young people who miss out on London’s creative opportunities. Barriers of inequality or simple lack of support stop young people from reaching their creative potential, which has knock-on effects for their chances of personal fulfilment and success in later life.

What is the vision of A New Direction?

Inequality is not set in stone; we can make London into a city with equal opportunities to engage with culture and be creative for all young people and children. This is our vision.

We are working towards a society where all children and young people can thrive through developing their creativity.

What does A New Direction do?

We work directly with the organisations at the front line: schools, cultural venues, local authorities and businesses. We unite those organisations to campaign for better policies that serve children and young people. We organise joint events and projects to reach a broader audience. We connect young people to mentors, work experience and inspiration.

Who does A New Direction help?

Children and young people in London and through helping them, wider society.
