Lambeth wins London Mayor’s Cultural Impact Award

Lambeth Council has won a Cultural Impact Award for £200k for its project Lambeth – Next Generation. Lambeth will work with young black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) Londoners to help them develop careers in the arts – inspiring the next generation of artists and cultural leaders. It will be supported by major cultural institutions across the borough including the South Bank Centre, Old Vic, BFI and the National Theatre.

Whilst it was disappointing that Lambeth was pipped by Waltham Forest and Brent to the 2019 and 2020 London Borough of Culture awards, Norwood Forum looks forward to this project making a real difference for those young people in Norwood pursuing a career in the arts.
