Inspiration Aspiration Partnership

Inspiration Aspiration Partnership is about arts, cultural organisations and schools working together to inspire creativity and increase aspiration by developing young people's pride in their local surroundings and resources.

The process has involved bringing the young people into contact with inspirational, professional writers, artists and local cultural amenities and of course vice versa. The project methodology was developed by Daisi and 4 Devon learning communities between 2006 and 2008, with 1600 young people, teachers, artists and cultural organisation staff taking part. The project shows overwhelmingly positive impact for participants across all five activity areas of the Every Child Matters Agenda and the project partners' desired outcomes:

  • Raising aspiration and broadening horizons
  • Inspiring pride in locality and community
  • Learning to work together
  • Increasing creativity
  • Increasing literacy
