About the Project

Youth Focus North WestYouth Focus North EastYorkshire & Humber CIO are working together with Arts Council England to create the new Youth Advisory Board.

Who are Arts Council England:

We are Arts Council England, the national development agency for creativity and culture. We give money to people and organisations to support creativity and make culture happen.

  • Culture means things like painting, music, dance, theatre, museums, libraries.
  • Creativity is what happens when we make culture. Creative practitioners are people who make culture, like musicians, dancers, or people who look after museums and libraries.

We want England to be a country in which the creativity of each of us is valued and given the chance to flourish and where everyone has access to a remarkable range of high-quality cultural experiences.
