What are LCEP’s?

Local Cultural Educational Partnerships

Arts Council England,  in partnership with the Department for Education,  launched “The Cultural Education Challenge”  to improve the alignment of cultural education for young people through Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs).


In each Local Cultural Education Partnership, a Bridge Organisation works with schools, the Local Authority, Voluntary and Community Organisations, Higher Education, Music Education Hubs, and other funders to drive a joined-up art and cultural offer locally, to share resources and bring about a more coherent and visible delivery of cultural education.
