Our Impact

2018/19 Impact statistics

At Eastside, impact comes both in the numbers of students we each and the quality of the engagement with them and their teachers. From half-day workshops that spark creativity or introduce a new art form, through to longer-term programmes that nurture young creative potential, we pride our selves on the depth and quality of our impact, as well as the diversity of the students we reach and the artists we engage with.
