New name and brand for Barnet Cultural Education Partnership

Published: Thu 19 Nov 2020

A new name and logo for the Barnet Cultural Education Partnership has been unveiled. Barnet & Culture for Youth (B&CY) develops and nurtures relationships between schools, artists, arts organisations and youth services in order to ensure every young person in the borough receives a rich, cultural education to provide them with tools to navigate the world and the confidence to feel it is theirs to enjoy. 

The new name and logo were created by the B&CY Youth Panel, a group of young people aged 14 - 21 who provide invaluable direction for B&CY. They worked with Sisterhood, a design organisation, to create a brand that felt meaningful to them, while encapsulating the spirit of the partnership. 

Last week’s BCEP Online Festival brought together over 120 participants from schools, arts organisations, artists and youth services in free online sessions. The wide range of workshops, panels, Q&A sessions and more focussed on young people’s access and engagement to arts and culture during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

B&CY works with its steering group and members to provide a variety of platforms and signposting to support young people’s cultural engagement. Alongside events like the Online Festival, B&CY members benefit from networking, CPD opportunities, and can apply for small grants from an Access Fund supporting projects in Barnet.
