Cannock Chase Cultural Education Partnership


Kerry Hutchings :

Current Aims & Objectives


  • Create a sustainable framework for the delivery of the arts in the Cannock Chase area.


  • Create a formal network of like-minded people who are committed to creating a sustainable platform to deliver arts and culture within the area.


  • Provide opportunities that focus on the arts, promoting the value of arts and culture to children and young people as well as the wider community.


  • Ensure that arts and culture is promoted both locally, regionally and nationally. Cannock Chase Cultural Educational Partnership will have an active philosophy to think nationally whilst acting locally.


  • Open up opportunities for children and young people who are disengaged from the Arts, we will show a commitment to make arts and culture accessible to all.


  • Members will work together to seek out funding and opportunities. Members will work together to ensure good quality sustainable arts and culture is our focus.

Youth involvement:

  • Involve children and young people to be at the heart of all activity and include young people so they have a representative cultural voice.


  • SHOUT OUT! Creative Commission with over 400 children and young people from across Cannock Chase – due to be launched 2020/2021
  • STARTS-Staffordshire Teachers ARTS Network. Networks are available to join for Primary ARTS, Secondary Visual Art, Secondary Dance and Secondary Drama.
