INSPIRE Festival - Join the conversation #inspirelbbd

INSPIRE is a festival and brand which celebrates young people’s talent and cultural achievement in Barking & Dagenham. The festival has grown since its origins in 2015. Events are organised in partnership between schools, arts organisations and FE institutions and its growth is due to the hard work of those organisations and young people involved. The festival is set to grow in 2018, with a theme of A YEAR FOR YOUNG PEOPLE’S CULTURE… OUR BARKING & DAGENHAM. Activities will go on throughout 2018, including performance and just as important, enabling talented young people to learn more about the jobs and opportunities available in the creative economy. Partners will include Barking & Dagenham College and well-known Universities along with major regional and local Arts & Heritage Organisations.
