CREATE: southeast and east london’s summer

Young people across south and south east london can showcase their creative skills this summer thanks to a new cross-borough project.

Create10 is a summer festival that hosts home-grown talent from south east and east London. It will run every year until the 2012 Olympics and it brings together culture and arts events from across the five host boroughs of the 2012 Olympics: Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

From 19 June  to 28 July, the Create project will invite young people to take the stage and perform their own lyrics at  some of the summer’s biggest  festivals.

Between 16 and 18 July  Create’s  homegrown talent will  perform on the Young London: Into Music  stage at The Lovebox festival. The Lovebox lineup includes local East End boy Dizzie Rascal, as well as Grace Jones, Mark Ronson & The Business, and Hot Chip.

On 18 July Create will host the Young People’s Afro-Caribbean Carnival, at Leyton Cricket Ground, where over a 1000 young people from across Waltham Forest will bring carnival and dance to the streets of Leyton.
