Leave your mark, create a legacy!

This March, join our exciting free five-week programme, every Friday after-school and change the face of Bethnal Green forever!

Numbi Arts, Rich Mix and A-Team Arts Education are looking for creative young people in Tower Hamlets to co-create public art in the borough. This five week programme will explore local history, design and printmaking to support young creatives in making their own piece of public art, a mural that will be on permanent display in Bethnal Green High Street.
