EvoKe Connecting Young People & Creativity in Kirklees

EvoKe is the Cultural and Educational Partnership, providing opportunities for children and young people to benefit from the amazing creative and cultural offer across Kirklees, established in response to Arts Council England’s October 2015 Cultural Education Challenge.

EvoKe aims for:

More children and young people to influence, take part and progress in a wider range of arts and cultural activity across Kirklees.

Improved visibility, quality and relevance of the arts and cultural offer for young people.

Improved health, wellbeing, achievement, creativity, resilience and aspirations of young people.
Improved parental and community engagement in young people’s learning.

EvoKe will collaborate to share ideas, resources and cultural assets to grow a quality cultural offer, in and out of school, for all children and young people in Kirklees.

EvoKe will do this through PREPARE:

Providing clear and accessible information about the arts and cultural offer and progression routes for children and young people.

Researching current provision and excellent practice to inform strategic planning.

Ensuring that teachers, artists & practitioners are trained to support arts and cultural learning.

Programming and producing opportunities to get involved in arts and culture and ensuring this is shaped by the needs of young people themselves

Articulating the difference that the arts & cultural offer in Kirklees makes to young people’s lives and to the borough overall.

Raising awareness and understanding of the wider value of arts and culture for young people.

Engaging parents, carers and care professionals in supporting their children to access arts and culture.
