Annual Review 2015
We launched our 2015 annual review with a celebratory event at the House of Lords
On 19 January 2016, A New Direction held a reception for 200 of our key stakeholders at the House of Lords. We were privileged enough to welcome a wide array of people and the event proved to be a perfect platform for idea sharing and collaboration.
Highlights from the event included passionate speeches from our Chair, Professor Maggie Atkinson, and the Baroness Beeban Kidron, and poem entitled 'A Strange Kind of Beauty' - written and recited by the Young Poet Laureate for London 2015/16, Selina Nwulu.
In addition to leading figures from the arts, culture and education sectors, along with Lords and other members of the House we were also delighted to welcome a group of young people, all of whom had previously participated in one of our programmes.
