Principles into Practice
A series of events exploring best practice in work for children & young people through the lens of the ACE Investment Principles
Join us for four invigorating sessions where you will learn from colleagues across the sector as they share examples of excellent children and young people (CYP) practice.
Building on the Investment Principles laid out in Arts Council England’s Let’s Create 10 year strategy, this series will offer a chance for cultural educators to come together to share recent examples of best practice and current insights. The sessions will be a space to reflect on collective learnings: what are the current challenges, and where can we do better?
