About us

A New Direction helps London create, think and learn.

We work to ensure that all children and young people get the most out of London’s extraordinary creative and cultural offer.

Through our partnerships we create positive change across schools, education and communities to ensure that young people get the most out of London’s extraordinary creative and cultural offer.

We want London to be -

  • a city where cultural education is the best in the world
  • young people are able to access and influence culture
  • the right platforms are in place to identify and nourish young people’s creative talents

This is the right of all young Londoners - regardless of wealth, geography or luck.
