Eastside is a highly acclaimed, award winning, world record breaking, arts education charity and London’s leading youth arts provider. We offer a fully comprehensive range of creative and cultural experiences which introduce children and young people to the arts, culture and heritage in London.
Eastside is working in partnership with the BFI this Autumn to provide young people aged 16-19 with opportunities to be part of the UK's future film industry. Led by industry experts, our course will cover every area of the film industry helping young people to make a career in film, a reality.
Eastside's work with children and young people is supported by many well known and respected figures from the arts and media; our celebrity patrons are standing-by to read you a line from their favourite books - but how many of these well loved stories, plays and books can you name...?
If you're aged 16-22, this is a chance to discover what goes on behind the scenes at a classical music concert and to get FREE tickets for top quality performances by world-class singers and musicians. You can also go behind the scenes of the first ever production of Haydn’s ‘The Creation’.
Adobe Youth Voices enables young people in London (aged 13-19) to create original media content on issues they care about and ignites 'Creative Confidence' - the ability to harness creative skills to solve problems - with advanced digital media tools and powerful storytelling techniques.
