We would like to encourage you to use The Culture Challenge in the way that suits you best. Scroll down and you’ll find The Culture Challenge Checklist as a PDF for you to print out and use with your learners. This could be used as a tool to generate ideas for new activities, as an audit before and after a cultural project, or in support of Arts Award.
We have also provided two The Culture Challenge Certificates for you to use in any way you wish. The Culture Challenge can be adapted to suit your learners so you might choose to give certificates for learners who have completed a certain number or percentage of activities, or who successfully complete a challenge of their choice.
