About Us

Doncaster Cultural Education Partnership (DCEP) works with artists, arts organisations and teachers to connect children and young people with arts and culture. We believe that all children & young people should be able to access and enjoy high-quality cultural opportunities both in and outside of schools.  Young people in Doncaster should be inspired, engaged and connected, and have a creative voice.

Doncaster was one of the first towns in our region to set up a Cultural Education Partnership in response to Arts Council England’s Cultural Education Challenge. The DCEP feeds into the Creative & Cultural Strategic Partnership (CCSP) which published the first Creative & Culture Strategy for Doncaster.

The partnership works within the Arts Council’s 7 Quality Principles:

  •    striving for excellence
  •    emphasising authenticity
  •    being inspiring, and engaging
  •    ensuring a positive child-centred experience
  •    actively involving children and young people
  •    providing a sense of personal progression
  •    developing a sense of ownership and belonging
