Eastside is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year. Over the past 20 years, we have worked with a quarter of a million young people, including some of the capital's most disadvantaged children and helped to launch the creative careers of countless talented young Londoners.
Eastside is helping schools to celebrate a host of events this term: Holocaust Memorial Day, Chinese New Year, National Storytelling Week, World Book Day, Commonwealth Day, World Poetry Day, World Theatre Day, Mothering Sunday, Easter and Shakespeare's birthday.
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...?
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.
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 - using digital media tools and powerful storytelling techniques.
We are currently looking to recruit a Fundraising and Development Manager to source and secure revenue from companies with corporate social responsibility teams, charitable Trusts and Foundations and individuals to enable us to expand our work with children and young people.
Throughout the last few years Eastside has enabled more than 180 young people to achieve a Bronze, Silver or Gold Arts Award and we are very proud to announce that we have recently been awarded Arts Award Good Practice Centre status 2013-2014, by Trinity College London.
Eastside has its own arts education centre; The Lower Eastside which includes a Studio space and an executive Boardroom, which are available for private hire, at competitive rates. 100% of all the income raised goes towards our work with local children and their families in East London.
