Unlocking the talent of children and young people conference

Evaluations of Creative Partnerships and other major programmes, such as Museums Strategic Commissioning, have shown that culture can help young people achieve all of the Every Child Matters outcomes: being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well-being.

13th October 2009

However, the number of young people not in education, employment or training is a worrying indication that the UK faces a future talent deficit. In order to combat this, enterprise and leadership skills must be encouraged both in and out of the classroom.

This conference will look at the successes and lessons learned from initiatives such as Find Your Talent, as well as introducing new programmes from government and community organisations designed to unlock the talent of children and young people.

Tuesday 13 October 2009, Barbican Centre, London EC2
