Our Artists

The creative drivers of our work

Teacher CPD


Eastside’s work depends on the talent, commitment and enthusiasm of our expert bank of artist facilitators.  With skill-sets ranging from documentary making to contemporary dance through devising, spoken word, storytelling, visual arts, drumming, creative writing, photography, animation, musical theatre, film editing and many other specialities across the art forms, our diverse group of 100 freelancers bring our creative learning workshops and programmes to life for thousands of children and young people every year.

If you are interested in joining our artist team then sign up to our newsletter here or keep an eye on our social media channels.  We recruit for new artists at specific points in the year and will publish any opportunities on our work with us page.



We also engage with industry experts as panel speakers, moderators, mentors and masterclass leaders, particularly on our film and digital programmes. 

We are always looking to further broaden and diversify our pool of industry contacts, so if you are a film specialist either with technical skills or in marketing, production, distribution or festivals, and want to support us in opening  pathways to the next generation of film-makers then please drop Nandita our Film & Digital Programme Manager a line on nandita@eastside.org.uk
