How important is cultural education, which stimulates creative learning and freedom within the arts for young people?

Join us as we chat to Leona Armstrong and David Allen, who both work alongside young people with the aim of rebuilding trust and positivity around their education.

Find out how this work is vital for the exposure of art for young people, some of whom have gone on to make and sell their own art.

Explore how love and passion for the arts ties these wonderful people together!

Hosted by Touchstones’ Bryan Beresford, Richard Philbin and Katie Roberts.
