Regional Adviser: Culture, Children and Young People
10 May 2006
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Garden to the post of Regional Adviser: Culture, Children and Young People. This exciting new post is funded by MLA North West, Arts Council England North West and the Museums Hub for the North West. It demonstrates a clear commitment by the organisations to work in partnership to develop a combined ‘cultural offer’ for children, young people and families.
Peter will promote the arts, museum, library and archive sectors to demonstrate how culture and creativity can contribute to the five outcomes of Every Child Matters. He will work closely with Children’s Services Authorities, the cultural sector and partners across the region to support the inclusion of cultural participation and creativity in local authority strategic planning.
Cultural services have a proven track record in supporting and delivering transformational opportunities for children, young people and families. MLA North West and Arts Council England North West will work together to empower the cultural sector to offer universal access to inspirational experiences, designed with, for and by children, young people and families.
We look forward to giving you regular updates on Peter’s progress on the MLA North West website.
