Following the successful launch of Culture Cares in 2018, the conference returns on Tuesday 16th November 2021 both in-person at Derby Theatre and livestreamed online. This year’s focus is on how arts and culture are making a positive impact and creating pathways in the lives of care-experienced young people.

About Culture Cares

In the context of the current Care Review (England), this is the second conference bringing the cultural and care sectors together for insightful and lively conversations, presentations and workshops.

The day features a brand-new performance co-created with care-experienced young people, commissioned by Arts Council England.

This nationally significant event will enable you to:

– Extend and update your practice as an artist, policy maker, care sector/arts professional or educationalist through examples of inspirational work

– Join practitioners and speakers to explore what is making a positive impact on the lives of young people in care and care leavers

– Hear from the young people themselves who will be sharing their thoughts and questions with delegates

– Experience an insight into the lives of young people in care through an inspiring performance that has been co-created with them

This event is available to attend online as well as in person. To find out more and book your place, visit the Derby Theatre website here.
