What we do

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.

Key programmes include:

  • Artsmark - we support schools to achieve an Artsmark Award
  • Arts Award - we support organisations to build this into their offer
  • Create Jobs - our employment programme to support and develop London’s next creative generation
  • Connected London - our 'place-based' programme working with local areas across London
  • ANDtogether - our information resource for London schools, listing programmes and opportunities from London's arts and cultural organisations
  • Free Resources - selected research, case studies, classroom resources, toolkits and films from across our programme, available to view and download for free
