"Lydia is a Creative Facilitator and Producer born and raised in London. Since 2017, she has been running creative arts projects with young people in various community settings and arts organisations across the city. Her artistic practice explores how everyday creativity can raise self-esteem, develop a strong sense of personal power and identity, and re-imagine what it means to be ‘creative’.
Lydia is currently the Creative Lead at Element, a youth charity that works with children and young people in care where she shapes the creative content of the art projects that they deliver with local councils. Before this, she was the Creative Communities Manager at Battersea Arts Centre, and has worked with The Kiln Theatre, The Agency, Good Chance Theatre, Football Beyond Borders, Shado Magazine, EY Foundation, The Baytree Centre, and The Single Homelessness Project."
