Exploring a Fairer World Through the Arts

Young people deserve to have their voices heard. This programme of work opens up creative opportunities to explore the change they wish to see on important issues such as the environment and racism and offers inspiration on how to contribute to the community. Eastside Online can support you to provide an inspiring environment for young people to express what kind of future world they wish to live in.
