Warm wishes in your return to school

Dear Eastside friends,

Welcome to our March blog in which we send our WARMEST WISHES to our friends, partners, schools, students, young people and teachers across the country as we all prepare to make our return to school, college, university, workplaces and so on as society prepares to re-open.  

At Eastside we recognise the extraordinarily difficult challenges that all of you have faced over the last twelve months whilst also reflecting on what we may have learned from this collective experience.

One thing that resonates strongly for the team at Eastside is the importance of connecting with each other, our friends and our families to ensure that we can support each other through adversity.  

As we prepare for this next transition in how we live and work we are pleased to say that we are here for you.  

Our school’s programme is up and running with brilliant uptake of our World Book Day offer, whilst providing a blended offer of expert artists in person or live online to suit your needs.  Email schools@eastside.org.uk to book your workshop.  

Our film and digital programmes are running, undaunted by the challenges of filming remotely (see the latest Eastside BFI Film Academy playlist here) and our building is getting ready for re-opening with new look meeting rooms and desk spaces for hire.

We are ready to help young people across London and the nation fulfil their creative potential as we put the finishing touches to our new business plan (more to follow on this) and prepare to launch a series of exciting new programmes and workshops in the near future.

If you want to be part of Eastside’s exciting journey, please write to me directly at matt@eastside.org.uk or alternatively support us here.
Thank you!
