Current Aims & Objectives
“25 things to do by 25”
Our culture is our past, present and future. Key to preserving and celebrating our culture are the things we do and the experiences we share. This challenge focuses on local issues and provides a manifesto for parents and adults who have responsibility for young people. This means all of us – those who work in health and social care, education, volunteers, public/private sector organisations and community groups.
Engaging with cultural activities enriches the lives of the people living in our area, leads to better health and wellbeing and ultimately makes our communities stronger. With 66% of jobs in our region involved in cultural and creative industries we cannot afford to let our young people bypass the experiences that could lead to future prosperity as well as enabling them to grow into positive human beings.
As partners in the Cultural Education Challenge we are proud of our past and are committed to forging our future through promoting cultural activity. We will work together to provide opportunities for our young people and have identified “25 things to do by 25”. These are activities that all of our children and young people should experience regardless of gender, cultural heritage, race, disability or wealth.
