The Paths Children Take – ROH Bridge Annual Conference

On 27th June, the Partnership Manager attended the ROH Bridge Conference The Paths Children Take. This was a great opportunity to network with schools from other parts of London as well as with leading Arts organisations and to discuss the opportunities that the UK has for children and young people to access careers in and related to the Creative Industries. It was also a time to reflect on the value of the Arts across the curriculum and for young people’s well being. One in eleven jobs in the UK are in the Creative Industries and it is forecast as one of the most future-proofed areas in a climate where AI is likely to dominate and reduce job opportunities. The conference themes fit well with our new Paul Hamlyn Foundation funded programme Developing a Growth Mindset through the Arts.
