About this event
The artistic landscape is changing. Across the country, budgetary pressures and the demands of career-focussed choices mean that we may be facing a generation of young people who have never experienced art at school or anywhere else. Charities and funders are both looking at the best ways to help young people experience and enjoy arts and culture.
We’ve been working with arts charities, across a full range of artistic styles, to understand what works in engaging young people in the arts. Our analysis of the published literature, data, interviews with practitioners and our conversations with young people themselves have shed light on best practice and challenged conventional wisdom.
At this invite only event, we will discuss the findings of our research, hear young people’s stories and build connections with others that are working hard to engage young people in arts and culture.
This event is taking place at the National Theatre on 4 October between 1.45pm and 4.00pm.

NPC is working on an in-depth review for the Mohn Westlake Foundation to find out how arts outreach can boost diversity and inclusion with the aim of establishing a base for effectiveness and creating a useful resource for all those working in this space.
From libraries to theatre, dance classes to galleries and museums, the arts play a crucial role in our lives. But as government budgets tighten, arts organisations are increasingly looking to philanthropists for support. This paper explores the important role philanthropists have to play in ensuring the future of the arts, and outlines some considerations for anyone seeking to support an arts charity.
What is art? It might seem academic but for charities trying to engage young people in culture, defining arts and culture matters.
