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.
Created by young people aged 13-20, each project received a grant of up to £500 and participants received mentoring from media professionals Shake Ur Arts and other professionals from the film and photography industry as well as training and access to top-of-the-range equipment.
The photographs will be displayed and the films screened at a free exhibition open to the public at Oxford House in Derbyshire Street, Bethnal Green starting on Saturday.
The exhibition is open from 9am-10pm Monday-Friday and from 10am-2pm on Saturdays and runs until May 15.
