Overview
The White Paper produced by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in March 2016 was widely perceived as a much needed injection into building a national strategy for culture. The White Paper of 2016 pointed out how 'experiencing and understanding culture is integral to education,' but at the same time acknowledged that 'network of provision remains patchy,' for children and young people.

Schools have always been appreciated as a fundamental foundation for cultural learning, enrichment and personal development. This timely forum will subsequently look to bring together key stakeholders and leading voices in the field in how the collaborative provision of cultural education can be made more consistent, targeted and strengthened, in its planning and delivery.

With schools remaining 'the single most important place where children learn about cultural education,' the forum will also have a more focused discussion on how schools can be better positioned to provide a strong cultural education to children and young people. Having hosted a high in demand forum on building inclusive pathways to access cultural education in 2016, the attention shifts toward partnership working in this broad field, which remains a prerequisite to the successful delivery of a targeted and rich cultural education.
