EAST Summer School 2022 is Back!

The Foundation for Future London is pleased to support this year’s EAST Summer School, set to deliver another exciting programme of FREE, interactive and high-quality arts, culture, innovation and education programme for young people aged 12 to 17-years-old in Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

The free summar school programme will run from Monday 25 July until Friday 5 August 2022.

As part of this year’s programme, the Foundation is supporting, alongside partner City of London, a fun-filled two-day session with creative practioners and employers called ‘Supercharge your Creative Career’.

Learning an art form is a great foundation for your creative career, but developing the right supporting skills can take things to the next level.  In these sessions, a creative professional and a creative employer will help you supercharge your career opportunities by introducing you to the idea of Fusion Skills – connecting with others to combine your knowledge, experience and identities to create new possibilities.  It’s what industry creatives do all the time; and a skill that is of huge importance to creative freelancers.

Join ensemble physical theatre company The Pappy Show to explore our core Fusion Skills – communication, collaboration, and creative thinking – through their signature style of inclusivity, joy, and bravery.

With tasks and challenges co-delivered with the BBE Podcast Agency, this two-day programme will give you a valuable insight into working in the creative sector and help broaden your career opportunities.

Supported by Foundation for Future London, City of London & Culture Mile Learning.
