Borough of Culture 2022

In April 2021, LEAN was announced the official education partner for Lewisham asĀ London Borough of Culture 2022.

We want to make sure that every school and educational facility in the borough is kept informed about the news and exciting opportunities that the next 12 months will bring.

LEAN will:

  • Work on behalf of all Lewisham’s schools, educational settings, early years settings and childminders – ensuring they are kept informed, engaged and that they get the most out of Borough of Culture 2022.
  • Act as a bridge between Borough of Culture, schools and early years settings, cultural organisations, artists, and the community sector.
  • Champion equality of opportunities in every sense across the borough.
  • Arrange opportunities for consultation, networking and feedback which will be shared with the wider Borough of Culture 2022 team and support the development of future activity.
  • Provide timely and straightforward communications by recruiting a Cultural Connector in each and every school in the borough (and many more across early years and further educational settings) to be our main point of contact. To sign up as your organisations Cultural Connector click here
  • Support arts engaged school staff to become cultural activists and develop their own projects.
