Reviewing the Rural and Coastal Cultural Education Landscape: Turning Policy into Practice

13 November 2017

Festival Bridge, one of 10 national Bridge organisations funded by Arts Council England and the Department for Education, works across our region, covering Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Peterborough and Suffolk with dedicated managers who work locally to understand the current landscape of cultural education in our area.

It recently funded Cambridgeshire ACRE to complete a research study examining the opportunities for Festival Bridge to lead the further development of cultural education in rural and coastal communities in Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Norfolk and Suffolk.

The resulting research study Reviewing the Rural and Coastal Cultural Education Landscape: Turning Policy into Practice was published in November 2017. A copy can be downloaded from the Resources and Downloads area of this page.

In addition, a toolkit was compiled to assist Local Cultural Education Partnerships operating in rural and coastal areas to review their ways of working and to help them consider how they can build a better LCEP. This toolkit can be downloaded too.
