About the network

A network of  schools, Arts Award Centres and supporters either situated or working with young people, organisations and settings in the culturally vibrant area of Tower Hamlets, Hackney and/or wider East London Area

The aim of this network is to facilitate opportunities for a shared approach to enable advisers, centres and supporters to have a better understanding of the opportunities on offer and help their young people to take full advantage. We hope it will also offer cultural organisations that run and/or support Arts Award the opportunity to share practice with other organisations and explore how they can work together to cover the requirements of the award, sharing of resources and work towards a more sustainable way to run projects.

Organisations, Supporters, Independent Advisers and School-based centres will benefit in joining this network as it could promote a more joined up approach, sharing of ideas and models of delivery, offering a space for discussion and support for advisers and facilitate access to programmes that arts award supporters offer.

The network events will be facilitated by Arts Award Adviser Francesca Gkotsi in partnership with Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service (THAMES), the Music Hub for Tower Hamlets and the City of London and the Geffrye Museum and  is kindly co-funded by A New Direction.
