Worcestershire Cultural Education Partnership (WCEP) is committed to broadening opportunities for children and young people to access high quality arts experiences as artists, producers, audiences and participants.

The partnership, co-ordinated by Severn Arts, is a network of Worcestershire artists, teachers, galleries, museums, theatres and schools who are committed to working together to make sure everyone has the opportunity to maximise their creative potential through arts and culture.

Local Cultural Education Partnerships (CEPs) were established in response to the governments cultural education challenge to develop a more joined-up arts and cultural offer locally, to share resources and bring about a more coherent and visible delivery of cultural education.

A great arts and cultural education gives children and young people the confidence and creative skills to thrive as individuals, as members of our society, and as the next generation of creative talent. All children and young people, wherever and whatever their start in life, should have the opportunity to have an arts and cultural education that nurtures innovation and unlocks the vital skills that are helping to drive our world leading creative industries.
