Creativity is as important in education as literacy.
- Sir Ken Robinson
Lewisham Education Arts Network (LEAN) champions arts education in Lewisham through empowering artist educators, those that work with them and strategic partners to foster high quality creative opportunities for children and young people.
LEAN wishes to attract new trustees to its board with expertise in the fields of finance, business, marketing and PR, campaigning and the creative arts (i.e. Media, Design, Fine Art, Craft and Mixed Media).
Whilst having experience of working in the arts and/or education is desirable, an enthusiasm for and commitment to arts in education is far more important!

Ive been honoured to be part of an organisation so committed to the advocacy and development of the arts in education for the advancement of children and young people. LEAN is a respected voice within the arts in Lewisham, and continues to be a leading force in the debate for and promotion of creativity in education, within and beyond the borough.
