The Hackney Road Sculpture Prize is a competition to find an original sculpture which will be included in the regeneration plans for Hackney.

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...?
Verse vs Verse is a reading and writing project for 500 children in primary schools in North and West London. Partipating children broaden their reading by exploring a range of books to inspire and develop their writing. They also use drama and performance to bring poetry to life.
