Following a successful pilot of the Culture Challenge project Bedford Creative Arts are pleased to welcome Kayte Judge as their Youth Participation Producer. This new role cements our on-going commitment to young people’s engagement in the arts. The Culture Challenge, an online web resource built to help schools find quality creative and cultural provision in their community, offers a new resource for young people, their teachers and the local cultural providers. By providing a checklist of things that young people might like to try, and the information to help them do this, it encourages and supports young people to get involved in the arts.  Bedford Creative Arts Chief Executive explains more

“We have always been committed to arts for all and provide a programme of activities suitable for a wide range of ages. With the creation of this new role we hope to further embed our offering for young people and help other organisations to do the same. The Culture Challenge provides a resource for all the cultural providers in the area and also challenges us all to consider our offer for young people. ”

Kayte Judge has been working with Bedford Creative Arts since 2011 and will be working in this role on a part time basis.
