The free courses are aimed at passionate, creatively curious and committed young people from between 10-19yrs old from across the Borough. Participants will come away having learnt new ways of thinking and being creative, techniques in core areas such as photography, 3D, audio, painting, mark making and film and new insight to career pathways in the creative industries. Each week culminates in a public exhibition for one night only curated by the young people using the work they have created during their week together.
The programme aims to further build confidence, deliver tools to approach thinking in new ways creative problem solving and gain access to locally renowned cultural venues such as The Nunnery, Whitechapel and Chisenhale galleries.
