Cultural Activities Summer Programme

By OurEverydayLives

INSPIRE AND CREATE!!!! We are running a  summer programme of cultural trips and arts based activities that enable at least 45 young people resident in Hackney South/Shoreditch, to experience as audiences and participants, a broad range of art forms that will stretch & enhance their understanding of the world around them. We seek to: engage young people in culture and identity based activities in the Arts/enable young people to explore self in relation to others through the expression of art (cultural capital)/create inspiring environments to develop potential/provide awareness of progression and employment pathways into the creative industries  – Follow us on instagram – mouth_that_roars
