This event marks the start of a longer discussion about how we should work together as a culture sector, to develop a set of principles which will help everyone understand better the quality of work being produced for, with and by children and young people.

In recent years, there have been huge efforts to try and understand, recognise and demonstrate what 'quality' arts and culture projects look like.  Despite this, there is still a lack of consensus about how we can achieve and demonstrate high quality work.

At this event, Arts Council England will set out its approach to addressing the priority 'raising the standard of work for, with and by children and young people' as set out in Achieving great art for everyone. A broad range of practitioners will be presenting their work and thoughts about 'quality' and we will present initial findings from recently commissioned research into existing quality and outcomes frameworks. Throughout the day delegates will be able to question and debate the issues inherent in this agenda with the presenters and with each other.

Who is this event suitable for?

This event is suitable for staff working in arts organisations, museums and libraries, future Bridge delivery organisations and other funded organisations producing and developing work for children and young people.
