The Arts & Heritage Alliance Milton Keynes (AHA-MK) is setting up the Milton Keynes Cultural Education Partnership (MKCEP) in response to Arts Council England’s Cultural Education Challenge. The Cultural Education Challenge asks arts and cultural organisations, educational institutions and local authorities to come together to drive a joined-up arts and cultural offer locally, to share resources and bring about a more coherent, and visible delivery of cultural education that offers a consistent, and high quality, arts and cultural education for all children and young people.
The MKCEP is made up of a network of arts, heritage and educational partners, led by a strategic steering group, which includes representatives from senior positions at MK Council, SEMLEP, our National Portfolio Organisations and Milton Keynes Police.
The MKCEP aims to develop a Cultural Education Strategy and Action Plan that ensures every child and young person (0-19 years) in Milton Keynes has the opportunity to create, participate in and influence culture. Through this engagement we will positively impact the well-being of young people and support their creative, personal and educational development. In addition, we aim to nurture the passion and capacity of children and young people to become artists, practitioners, producers and directors within the cultural and creative industries.
We are advertising two briefs, looking for freelancers to undertake consultation that will inform our Cultural Education Strategy:
