Current Aims & Objectives

We will capitalize on the strengths of our rich cultural identity to build a sense of belongingness that excites in all our citizens an understanding of the intrinsic value and transformative power of arts and culture for children and young people (aged 0-25 years) in Walsall. 

The Walsall CEP sets out to ‘CASCADE’ opportunities to:

  • Capitalize on the strengths of our rich cultural identity to build a sense of belongingness by profiling publically the quality activities available and the achievements reached by, with and for our youngest citizens
  • Actively engage our young people in changing attitudes to the arts and enabling their ‘voice’ to inform developments
  • Support our children and young people in sharing, celebrating and being proud of the artistic diversity of our local communities
  • Create new opportunities to explore and celebrate the cultural heritage and assets of Walsall and the Black Country and create arts work in response
  • Arouse curiosity and interest through collaborative working across sectors to unlock hidden talents and synergies
  • Develop a directory of arts and cultural activity to raise the profile and awareness of existing resources both locally and also nationally
  • Excite in all citizens an understanding of the intrinsic value and transformative power of the arts and culture
