ChalleNGe brings together Nottingham's cultural and education sectors to improve the city's cultural learning offer for children and young people.

Our purpose is to bring Nottingham's cultural and education sector together - to explore, research, innovate and improve the city's cultural learning offer to more and different children and young people. We want to collaborate, evaluate and facilitate closer working relationships with universities, schools, colleges and other education providers and children and young people.

"Through the Cultural Education Challenge, we want to make sure that more children and young people can create, compose, and perform. We want every child to have the chance to visit, experience and participate in extraordinary work, and be able to know more, understand more, and review the experiences they've had." Arts Council England, 2015
