A report on culture and learning in the 21st century, funded by the Culture and Learning Consortium, of which PHF is a member, is published today by the Clore Duffield Foundation.
The report, 'Culture and Learning: a new agenda for advocacy and action', summarises responses from a consultation of participants in the formal and informal learning, arts and heritage sectors. The consultation was carried out through seminars held at cultural venues across England, through interviews with groups of teachers, or through written responses to an earlier Demos Consultation Paper, 'Culture and Learning : Towards a New Agenda', by John Holden, published in February 2008.
This latest report shows the shared belief of many of the participants in the impact that cultural learning can make on people's lives. It makes ten key recommendations for developing consistently high-quality cultural learning experiences, from central and local government down to individual schools and cultural organisations.
