Stratford Waterfront Engagement and Learning Programme Commission


London Legacy Development Corporation and Foundation for Future London (with funding from City of London) are seeking to commission a creative organisation to collaborate on the development of an engagement and learning programme across Spring and Summer 2021. This could include interactive workshops, masterclasses, art-making, career development, creative learning opportunities or others.

Working with the local community, the programme aims to provide a platform for local East London voices and support the artist’s development of the final artwork across Stratford Waterfront public realm. It is also intended the programme will help to build local ownership and an identity for the site at this early stage through conversations such as events, interviews, discussions/talks, podcasts, and roundtables.

You will have access to a budget of £20,000 — £25,000 (inc. VAT).
