The Culture Challenge


The Culture Challenge is a project developed by Kayte Judge at Bedford Creative Arts, in collaboration with head teachers, young people, and cultural practitioners.

The Culture Challenge encourages schools to engage with the wealth of cultural activity in their local area, urges cultural providers to be ready for young people, and applauds children and young people who want to explore art and culture for themselves.

Schools can use The Culture Challenge Directory to find providers they can work with on anything from one-off workshops to week-long whole-school projects. Resources and case studies are available to access and download here.

Young people and parents, meanwhile, can use The Culture Challenge website to help generate ideas about cultural activities they might like to try, places they might like to go, or things they might wish to see in the local area.
