This presentation was given at the Creative Development Day on 17 September 2012 organised by The Reading Agency in partnership with the Association of Children's and Education Librarians and Arts Council England.

A New Direction is part of a national network of 10 bridge organisations, funded by Arts Council England (through lottery) to use our experience and expertise to connect children and young people, schools and communities with art and culture.

A New Direction aims to:

1) To improve the extent to which all young people can engage in a broad range of cultural and creative experiences.

2) To ensure that London’s cultural and creative opportunities for young people improve and aspire to be the best in the world.

3) To make sure that young people from all backgrounds have the opportunity to progress in their chosen creative and/or cultural interest.
