The collaboration is underpinned by agreed principles:
- That increasing engagement in arts and culture is a good thing
- That we can achieve more collectively than we can as individual organisations

What is the Children & Young People Hub?
The Children & Young People’s hub is one of several hub groups within the DAT collaboration. The purpose of this hub is to lead, make links and initiate partnership in the arts and culture to work on projects that ensure that benefits and engages children and young people.
