This publication focuses on the four values of Cultural Learning: Social; Educational; Economic; and Personal. This document is a call to arms for everyone in education and the arts in the UK today, and it advocates that very effort must be made to halt the erosion of the arts as an essential pillar in the structure of education, and to ensure that all children are the recipients of a broad and balanced education.

The CLA first published ImagineNation, together with its first Key Research Findings in 2011, thereby setting the agenda for a national conversation about the value of cultural learning. This new edition from 2017, based on an updated Key Research Findings report, presents a refreshed, comprehensive and compelling case for the value of cultural learning within and beyond our education system.
