Shortlist announced for the North West Cultural Education Awards 2020

Curious Minds is delighted to announce the shortlisted finalists of the North West Cultural Education Awards 2020. This year we will be celebrating the individuals and teams in our region’s schools, arts and cultural sectors who have gone above and beyond to bring creative and cultural learning to life for children and young people through the period of national lockdown.

We have been overwhelmed by the response to this year’s stripped-back awards process, for which we received over 100 nominations across just 3 categories! Every single one of these has highlighted examples of parents, teachers and arts professionals doing innovative, creative and truly inspiring work for children and young people, whilst they try to navigate through the unexpected hurdles and challenges of living and thriving in a global pandemic.

Every nominee has an inspirational story to tell and the Curious Minds team feels honoured to be part of the North West’s cultural education workforce.

We would like to warmly invite all of our colleagues and partners, whether you were nominated or not, to come together to celebrate these and other examples of great work in extraordinary circumstances, in a virtual presentation ceremony, Cultural Education Unlocked. This twilight event is free and open to all. It will feature performances from or commissioned by young people, stories from the award nominees and winners, highlights from the sector’s innovative pandemic response and words of celebration and encouragement from some well-known and much-loved famous faces.
