New ways of sharing our museums, archives, libraries and historic places with young people and their families.

We want every child and young person in Wales to enjoy, learn and be inspired by our amazing history, heritage and culture.

Changing Cultures is about new ways of sharing our museums, archives, libraries and historic places with young people and their families, particularly those from less well off backgrounds. It will also help support agencies and the cultural sector to work even better together. 

Taking part in cultural activities is an important stepping stone on the path of life. Studies have shown that access to culture can help children and young people do better at school. And the best thing is that it’s fun!

See the Programme of Events to find out what's on, where and when. It’s also worth remembering that museums, libraries, archives and historic buildings are open all year round and many of the activities they offer are free.

Changing Cultures supports our Child Poverty Strategy and Tackling Poverty Action Plan.
