Free creative courses for local residents

Two longstanding Brixton arts organisations, Photofusion and 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, have got together to offer free courses for unemployed or low-income adults living in Lambeth.

Three Factory Production House Step-Up courses are designed to strengthen and extend participants’ creative practice and to improve their prospects as they move into the arts, creative industries or further education.

The 10-week courses – in photography, art and design, and video – are a great way to learn new skills, network with other creative people and make new work, say the organisers.

They hope to run the courses in person, but will be following government guidance.

Courses start on 24 January and run until 30 March. They are open to any Lambeth resident who is 19 or over and unemployed or on a low income.
