Here at HLF North West, we are delighted to share that a number of our fabulous grantees have been nominated for the first ever North West Cultural Education Awards, which brings together teachers, cultural organisations, artists and influencers from across the North West to celebrate and recognise those working in the most creative and innovative ways in the region.
The winners of awards will be announced on Friday 28 April at a special ceremony at the Guildhall in Preston. The ceremony will shine a light on best practice and those individuals who have gone above and beyond in their work to bring the benefits of great arts, heritage and culture to the region's children and young people. The full shortlist can be viewed here, and provides an excellent list of those engaging young people in effective and imaginative ways - http://curiousminds.org.uk/a-very-curious-affair-and-the-north-west-cult…
