25th Anniversary

11th February 2019

I am really pleased to announce some very exciting news. Did you know Eastside celebrates its 25th anniversary this year? We have been thinking hard about how to mark this important milestone. It’s taken us many months to design, develop and deliver our big idea, and here it is…

We are proud to announce I know, I wish, I will … a year long creative collaboration which will bring together thousands of young people to create the world’s longest youth-led spoken word poem! You can find out more by visiting the project website here.

We have also just launched this year’s Females in Film Mentoring Programme. Watch our promo video below (made by one of our film programme alumni!) and please share with any budding young female filmmakers in your networks.

Eastside is working hard to reach more schools and young people than ever before with our creative offer. We’re currently working with schools across London to deliver workshops in Creative Teacher CPD and preparing ourselves for World Book Day, World Poetry Day and Shakespeare Week celebrations!

Finally, this month, we are delighted to welcome Nandita Lovage to the Eastside team as our new Film and Digital Programme Manager. She will lead our work with young aspirant filmmakers and develop our online and digital activity.

Wishing you all a happy February!
