The Foundation is the founder of the Cultural Learning Alliance (CLA), a collective voice championing a right to culture for every child.
The CLA was established in 2010 following extensive consultation with practitioners working across the cultural and learning sectors. The Alliance is formed from a range of organisations and individuals including teachers, schools, non-departmental public bodies, philanthropists, umbrella organisations, cultural and arts partners, creative industry leaders, and education specialists. It has around 10,000 members and 12,000 Twitter followers. The CLA is funded by the Clore Duffield Foundation, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
