Arts Council England are currently engaging in a series of conversations with people from all over England, to inform the creation of a 25 year creative talent plan. At the heart of this consultation are conversations with children and young people, and Sound Connections, on behalf of Arts Council England, are facilitating ten round table meetings to better understand young people’s perception of arts and culture and explore what barriers might exist to involvement.
In addition to these roundtables, Sound Connections created a young people’s survey to ensure that they reach as wide a group of young people as possible. The survey has been adapted for two age groups and is available here:
11-25yrs survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BB9BYC2
7-11yrs survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BBHHNVF
Sound Connections are keen to hear from children and young people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities; those that are engaged in arts and culture, and those who are perhaps less ‘traditionally’ involved; those from rural backgrounds and those living in cities; from a range of settings – schools, mainstream and SEN/D, youth clubs, cultural and heritage, sport, health etc. Please circulate the surveys to any young people you think would be receptive.
Sound Connections will ensure that outcomes of the survey are proactively shared with all those that participate, with follow up information about how opinion will be incorporated and acted upon.
The surveys will be closed on Wednesday 15 May 2017.
