Here are some questions we are commonly asked.


what's covered in the workshops?

We respond to whatever your aims and objectives are, whether that be a theme, the acquisition of soft skills, a focus on a particular art practice or just wanting your pupils to get creative.  Don’t know what you want? Then give us a call for a free consultation and we can talk you through suggestions across the diverse artforms.


who are your facilitators?

All of our facilitators are working creative professionals, be they poets, actors, writers, visual artists, musicians, photographers, dancers, directors or… clowns! They are all DBS checked, fully insured, have been trained by Eastside and are experienced at delivering workshops in a school setting.


how long are the workshops?

Projects can vary in length from one-hour creative taster sessions to week-long workshops, continuous programmes and residencies, either in term time weekdays or during the weekends and holidays. We can tailor them to fit your timetable and budget.


how much notice do you need?

Many schools book us up months in advance, however we appreciate that isn’t always possible. We usually require a minimum of two weeks notice, though the longer the project the more planning time we will need.


what do they cost?

All our workshops and projects are created bespoke and tailored to the needs of the group, and costings will take into account the duration of the project and any resources needed. Please don’t hesitate to contact the team to discuss your ideas and get a quote with your budget in mind. You’re not obliged to pay anything until the project is fully confirmed.


what do you need from me?

If you email us, you'll need to let us know a contact phone number, the best time to call, school location, the themes or artform, information about the young people taking part and any particular requirements in terms of outputs or outcomes. Alternatively you can call us on 020 7033 2380.
