Children and Young People

King’s second Cultural Enquiry, into access to the arts for young people, takes a historical stance on the development of government policy designed to increase arts engagement by children and young people and provides key recommendations to ensure that the lessons of the past are taken into account by policy makers in the future. 

 CYP-page-imageAs part of the Enquiry process, we conducted a ‘Witness Seminar’ – a research technique developed by oral historians at King’s – which brought together key players from the arts sector in the late 1970s and 1880s to build a picture from their personal accounts and recollections. A transcript of the seminar is available to download from the righthand menu.





It was supported by the university's Culture team.
