Power of Partnerships 2022 Gathering


This was a hybrid event with the three Bridge partners; Arts Connect, Festival Bridge and The Mighty Creative, that brought together Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs) from across the Midlands and East Anglia on the 5th of May 2022.

You can view the recorded highlights from the day which includes ‘Abridged Fragments’, a poem by Charley Genever and the Partnerships Expert Panel Discussion.

Theme 1: Creative Rights

Creative Rights considers the entitlement of children and young people to connect and create so that each one of them, regardless of situation or background, is enabled to find and follow whatever shape they want creativity to take in their life.

Theme 2: Creative Futures


Creative Futures considers the success of LCEPs (Local Cultural Education Partnerships) in the long term, so that local place-based partnerships, which are essential to a thriving future for our children and young people, are made sustainable, achievable, and beneficial for all involved.
