Artists in Residence

Artists in Residence offers schools across London an eight-week long creative residency

The Artists in Residence programme gives up to 12 Primary and SEND schools, in select boroughs of London, the opportunity to work towards a selected school improvement goal using the arts. 

In the Summer Term of 2024, schools will unlock the joy of learning and develop key academic and personal skills for their pupils. The project supports teachers with creative approaches to the curriculum. Through meaningful partnerships with Eastside’s Artists, we will provide participating schools with opportunities to embed the arts in the heart of school life.
