Future Leaders

Future Leaders


Future Leaders is a project we launched in 2022, which brought together an inspirational group 16-25 year olds from East London who were interested to learn more about how cultural organisations were run.

The group meet once a month and together they produced their own project during the 2022 October half term.

Our 2022 Future Leaders 

Dear Future 

Imagine if you were able to create your own radically joyful future. What would that future look like for you? What would that future look like for everyone? 

During October half term, we wanted to think about what a utopian future could look like for young people right now. An incredible group of young creatives (aged 13-17) worked with artists Tash Hyman and Nicola Chang over two days, to interrogate our current dystopia and imagine a brighter future. Together they created this audio piece exploring how our creativity can shape what comes next. CLICK HERE to listen to Dear Future.

Lead facilitators: Tash Hyman (director) & Nicola T. Chang (sound designer) 
Flautist: Jaden
Contributions from: Ayana, Jaden, Mimi, Makeba, Sev, Jadine, Dom, Joseph 

This project was created and produced by our 2022 Future Leaders, with the support of the Learning & Participation team.
