ELMO Master Class

An event (in partnership with the Whitechapel Art Gallery) for young people interested in learning about the 'realities' of working in the arts, creative and crafts industries.

This masterclass is for young people 16-24 who are interested in learning about the ‘realities’ of working in the arts, creative and crafts industries.

The evening offers the opportunity to meet practicing artists as well as staff who work at the Whitechapel Art Gallery.

You will hear directly from professionals about how they got started in their careers and learn about their job roles. There will also be chances for you to get advice and ask questions about where you are at and how you can move into this sector.

A New Direction has been commissioned by the Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park to provide links and mentoring opportunities to young people 16-24. We are working in partnership with the East London Mobile Workshop (ELMO) providing interactive workshops and activities across Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
