About Us

About Us

The Cultural Learning Alliance (CLA) is a collective voice working to ensure that all children and young people have meaningful access to culture.

Arts and culture are a life-enhancing and essential part of our existence. They bring pleasure, participation, self-expression and essential skills into children’s lives. By speaking with one voice and working together, we can realise our ambition for all children and young people to have an entitlement to quality cultural learning.

The Alliance brings together the diverse parts of the cultural sector to work together – including museums, film, libraries, heritage, dance, literature, new media arts, theatre, visual arts and music – with the education and youth sector, with parents and with young people.

The CLA aims to use our collective skills and voice to:

  • Develop and advocate for a coherent national strategy for cultural learning
  • Unite the education, youth and cultural sectors
  • Showcase excellent projects and practice
  • Demonstrate why cultural learning is so important
