We are delighted to welcome Andria Zafirakou, MBE, an art and textiles teacher in Brent on the outskirts of London, one of the world’s most ethnically diverse places. Andria's message is clear, in whatever medium it comes, the importance of ensuring young people have access to creativity and expression has never been more pressing. Andria will share with us her vision and story of how through education, the lives of many children at her school have been changed.
