We are seeing an overall shift in approaches to cultural provision and engagement with and for young people. TFCC will undertake a project to help Northamptonshire County to take the lead in cultural development and education, expressing the needs and aspirations of an increasingly youthful population, establishing how cultural provision can become better suited to their shifting needs.

Joining together strategic agendas from national level to local delivery, so that a coordinated cultural offer is established for young people across the county, our strategy will build in flexibility to enable innovation in service design and delivery, identifying partnership opportunities and engaging young people across the county, utilising social media techniques.
