Leading The Way – Instagram Takeover

October 1, 2020

This is the first event like this that we’ve run at Creative Arts East, and we’re so excited to showcase some fantastic work from some of the UK’s best young creatives, encourage conversation around some of the barriers that young people face when it comes to arts opportunities, and give young people a platform to share their voice.

Where is this happening? Join us over on our Instagram page at @creativeartseast SATURDAY 3rd October, from 10am to 4pm, where we’ll be sharing content on our grid and stories throughout the day. You could even turn on notifications for our posts, so you don’t miss a thing!
