There’s an incredible amount of talent and energy amongst young people in the borough. Alter Ego gives them an opportunity to get on stage and show case their talent.

It’s a great way to open Discover Young Hackney. A free festival designed to harness that talent and give young people the practical tools and information they need to get on the right career path, through a very exciting programme of events.
