Vision & Values

Our vision is for an equal society where all children and young people are supported to achieve their creative potential and live fulfilled lives, rich with arts and culture.

Curious Minds works to place creativity and culture at the heart of education and other services for children and young people. Working across sectors, we aim to drive equal access, continuous improvement and innovation in the field of creative and cultural education.

We are proud to have been serving the North West of England as Arts Council England’s Bridge Organisation since 2012.

As leaders of the Cultural Education Challenge in the region, our goals are:

  • to create access to the arts and culture for all children and young people
  • to enable creative collaboration between the cultural and education sectors
  • to work with schools, HIEs and cultural organisations to test and incubate innovative solutions to cultural and creative education

Our team includes people from across the worlds of culture, education and children's services; together we are deeply committed to enabling creative and inclusive practice for the benefit of all children and young people from birth to 25.
