FILM and photography projects by 14 young East Enders will go on display at Bethnal Green's Oxford House this week.
Futureversity, which used to be Tower Hamlets Summer University, is celebrating the talents of 14 of its students with an exhibition inspired by their perceptions of London, their opinions and dreams for the future.
The projects give a first-hand insight into what it is like to be a young person living in London today.
Themes include the effects of cultural difference, animal cruelty and a documentary looking at young people's aspirations and how they see themselves in the future.
