London Assembly Member and Mayor’s Youth Ambassador James Cleverly is helping mark a decade of work to combat anti-social behaviour by helping youngsters into the arts and theatre studies.
The Complete Works Creative Company are marking their 10 year anniversary with a week long exhibition at the Vibe Bar, in Brick Lane, which will be officially launched by Cleverly later today.
Phil Evans, Chief Executive of the Complete Works said: “Over the last 10 years, we have grown from a one man show into a large ensemble of actors, musicians, film makers and artists of all types, offering a multitude of methods and techniques to enable people of all ages and abilities to learn. We look forward to finding even more ingenious and innovative ways to motivate people to engage in education, training and employment, through the arts.”
The exhibition, which runs between 13th – 17th July, includes displays of masks, puppetry, animation and film all produced by young people.
Congratulating the charity for their work, Cleverly said: “We have millions of bright young minds in our city with a real thirst for learning, which with the right guidance and opportunities can achieve great things. The creative skills young people learn at the charity will nurture the next generation of actors, film makers, photographers, and artists.”
Joining Cleverly for the launch will be actor and supporter Art Malik who commented: “It is fantastic that we have reached a decade of the Complete Works and I’m happy to be part of today’s celebrations. Here’s to another centenary! “
