The Cultural Education Partnership working in Amber Valley, Bolsover & North East Derbyshire

Our Vision: A childhood made up of rich, varied experiences that include exposure to and participation in arts and cultural education builds the foundations for a happy and healthy life. An equality of access that effectively negotiates personal barriers, social stigma and geographical challenges means no one misses out or goes unheard.
