Connected London: Building a Cultural Education Roadmap for London

The event was aimed at organisations who are prepared to play a leading role in making something happen locally as well as leading change nationally and regionally.

London has the potential to be the greatest city in the world to have a cultural and creative childhood, but all too often opportunities are limited and wealth, geography and luck play a big part in who gets what. With the population explosion taking place in London the city has the potential to build a clear set of cultural opportunities that all children and young people can take part-in, which will improve their lives and feed the talent base of the future.

A New Direction has been working with partners over the last 18 months on the Connected London programme, to develop new ways of building excellent local cultural education and we will share our findings and launch a publication at this event.

The event was is for organisations who are prepared to play a leading role in making something happen locally as well as leading change nationally and regionally.

We were very pleased that David Lammy, Labour MP for Tottenham, former Minister for Culture and author of Out of the Ashes; Britain after the Riots gave the key-note speech.
