PAID creative opportunities for young people in Newham

The People’s Pavilion by Beyond The Box Consultants is offering young East Londoners a chance to work with professionals from design, construction and creative arts industries to design and build their own Pavilion -- then curate a 10-day festival in it at Here East in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. No experience needed -- you will gain access to a full programme of free skills workshops lead by industry professionals and creatives from across London. The People’s Pavilion is supported by our Foundations Programme, which is co-funded via a four-year partnership with City of London. The programme’s aim is to develop longer term shared learnings between the two new cultural districts of East Bank and Culture Mile and support our local collaborative cultural programming around creative education, lifelong learning and employment opportunities.
