What is Challenge London?

Challenge London, led by A New Direction with funding from Arts Council England, is about ensuring that all children and young people in London can develop their creativity and play an active part in the culture and heritage of the city.

Between 2015 – 2018 we invested just under £900,000 in 12 programmes that worked across half of London’s boroughs, raised matched funds of over £915,000 and reached over 10,000 young people.

In 2018, the Challenge continues.We will be investing in a number of new programmes against match funding from other sources.
