Goal 5 in ‘Great art and culture for everyone’ states Arts Council England’s (ACE) aim for every child and young person to have the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts and culture. One of their immediate priorities underpinning this goal is to raise the standard of work being produced by, with and for children and young people.
