Event Details

This masterclass is for young people 16-24 who are interested in learning about the ‘realities’ of working in the arts, creative and crafts industries.  
The evening offers the opportunity to meet practicing artists as well as staff who work at the Whitechapel Art Gallery. You will hear directly from professionals about how they got started in their careers and learn about their job roles. There will be chances for you to get advice and ask questions about where you are at and how you can move into this sector.
A New Direction has been commissioned by the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park to provide links and mentoring opportunities to young people 16-24. We are working in partnership with the East London Mobile Workshop providing interactive workshops and activities across Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. See here for more details about the ELMO programme.
Please see the programme for more details about the speakers.

A New Direction

Please note: we endeavour to make all of our events accessible to all. All of our venues are wheelchair accessible. For further accessibility information please refer to the venue's website.

A New Direction is a London-based non-profit generating opportunities for children and young people to unlock their creativity.

Why does A New Direction exist?

London is one of the greatest creative hubs in the world. Every day, thousands of the children and young people who live here are inspired by the city’s culture to unleash their own creative side. They have the chance to develop their skills, talents and passions, becoming people who can thrive in a challenging, changing world and boost our wider society.

But there are also thousands of young people who miss out on London’s creative opportunities. Barriers of inequality or simple lack of support stop young people from reaching their creative potential, which has knock-on effects for their chances of personal fulfilment and success in later life.

What is the vision of A New Direction?

Inequality is not set in stone; we can make London into a city with equal opportunities to engage with culture and be creative for all young people and children. This is our vision.

We are working towards a society where all children and young people can thrive through developing their creativity.

What does A New Direction do?

We work directly with the organisations at the front line: schools, cultural venues, local authorities and businesses. We unite those organisations to campaign for better policies that serve children and young people. We organise joint events and projects to reach a broader audience. We connect young people to mentors, work experience and inspiration.

Who does A New Direction help?

Children and young people in London and through helping them, wider society.
