The Line
The Line is an ambitious public art project in East London that connects Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and The O2, following the waterways and the line of the Greenwich Meridian. Our mission is to connect communities and inspire individuals through a dynamic outdoor exhibition programme where everyone can explore art, nature and heritage for free.
Description

The Line is East London’s public art trail. Its outdoor exhibition programme offers a journey through a dynamic urban landscape where everyone can explore art, nature, and heritage for free. As a space for discovery and learning, we believe in the transformative potential of art, nature, and wellbeing. The Line are looking for motivated and engaging Youth Guides to work outdoors on The Line, at weekends over the summer. Becoming a Youth Guide is a great way to meet others, get outdoors, enrich your local community, learn new skills, and have fun!
