8.3.5 Basic out-of-school arts and cultural education

Out-of-school opportunities for cultural and arts education are taking on ever greater importance, often exhibiting higher quality and a broader scope than available in-schools. New concepts and institutions that increasingly combine classical arts education with the use of new media have been developed and established by non-governmental sponsors with the aid of public funds. A key impetus to increase efforts furthering arts education for children and young people came in 1991 through Section 11 of the Child and Youth Services Act.
