Cultural Education in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole
Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole have a ground-breaking track record of cultural education partnership working. For many years they have supported a local cultural hub, drawn from key partners across the cultural and education sectors. The hub develops, resources and carries out a range of projects and initiatives to meet identified cultural education needs and priorities in local schools.
Work is continuing to utilise the already well recognised Cultural Education Hub hosted by WAVE and Soundstorm, as one of the central foci for further partnerships working in the area, with the Arts Development Company also taking a leading role. We have been supporting the strategic development of Wave and Soundstorm via an IP and delivering a range of level 2 training for them involving a wide range of local partners. For more details on any of these, or to connect to the local cultural education hub, please contact Dan Somogyi.
As Bridge organisation for the south west we have compiled a range of infographics drawing together data from ACE and from government to give an overview of cultural education in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. This snapshot will help anyone interested in cultural education in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole have a greater understanding of the context for children and young people in this locality. The data may also help with bid writing and comparing with other localities as well as for identifying priorities in each area. We’ll be reviewing these quarterly and will update them with any new figures that are available.
There are some really interesting tools and data sets which are freely available – including the Arts Council’s ‘cultural education data toolkit’ – along with a range of other databases focussed on cost of interventions for children and young people, disadvantage, health and education.
