Picture of London Infographics

This set of infographics set out the key context behind our work, and the background behind many of the challenges that lie ahead for those working with young people in the creative and cultural sector.

A key function of A New Direction's Bridge role is to help understand the cultural education landscape in London.

This means understanding the demographics, trends, and data in relation to how children and young people interact with cultural opportunities.

About the infographics

The following infographics have been developed by bringing together a number of different existing datasets, to see what they tell us about the different areas of London.

  • Where do young people live?
  • What kind of school do they attend?
  • Which boroughs get the best GCSE results?
  • Who has really embraced Artsmark?

These questions can help us understand the city better and think about how we need to prioritise our activity.
