On Saturday 30th June we celebrated the first year of our Young Culture Makers programme with an arts showcase at Spotlight in Poplar. The event saw contributions from over 100 young people who have been part of our pilot Young Culture Makers arts programme this year.

The work demonstrates beautifully that if you give young people the space, time and opportunity, they can produce incredible work.
