HCEP Hertfordshire Cultural Education Partnership

Calling all Herts based artists, creative and cultural providers who want to work with schools!

HCEP is looking to hear from cultural & creative providers big and small based in Herts who want the opportunity to work (more) with local schools. With support from the Royal Opera House Bridge Organisation (www.roh.org.uk/learning/royal-opera-house-bridge), we have been commissioned to build better co-creative relationships and networks between Hertfordshire schools and the wealth of creative and cultural talent that exists within the county to promote and support creative learning in schools.

HCEP is commissioning Herts-based creative consultancy Glow (www.glowtraining.net) to create local co-creation networks with schools and young people and develop a database of cultural providers to support creative learning in educational settings. The project aims to run workshops with schools and providers to encourage greater communication through co-creation, leading to more projects in the school environment run in partnership with local artistic and cultural partners.

Whatever the size of the organisation (from individual artists to NPOs), whatever your art form or practice - whether it be art, performance, heritage, digital, or something else – if you have an offering for schools or want to learn more about how to create one, we’d like to hear from you. We’re especially interested in hearing from providers based in the Dacorum, Watford & Letchworth areas.

If you’re a creative practitioner and have experience of working with young people, we’d love to hear from you: The consultancy is already underway and the first draft of the database will need to be produced in the next few months- so don’t delay: use the link below to contact HCEP and to enter details of you, your organisation and your practice for inclusion on the database and to get more information about how to get involved in other aspects of the project.



HCEP is an ambitious countywide Cultural Education Partnership. HCEP brings together a range of partners from the education and cultural sectors, as well as local authorities and youth service providers to deliver its strategy to ensure all young people in Hertfordshire can access high-quality cultural provision.

It aims:

1. To ensure access to a high quality, diverse, creative and cultural education for all young people who live or learn in Hertfordshire – in particular for those who are disadvantaged or hard to reach.

2. To enable children and young people living or learning in Hertfordshire to become active co-creators of their creative and cultural learning.

3. To enable all young people to progress through high quality creative and cultural learning experiences, following learning pathways that will help develop creative skills, employability and where desired, careers in cultural industries.
