'We believe in society, and we believe in young people. We know that every individual is unique and has the ability to exemplify excellence, it is all within.'

Afrobeat artist and MOBO nominee Silvastone is director of White Hut Studios in Education based in New Addington together with Miriam Thomson who is a director and senior mentor.
The London-based musician has worked with Rita Ora, Hollywood film director Tyler Perry and the Netflix original “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” to name a few – Miriam has a world of experience in working with young people and their families, spanning back to well over 10 years. She has been acknowledged throughout the Borough for her excellent work with children and young people throughout Croydon.
“White Hut Studios in Education was birthed in the belief that we can all do far more than we ever thought possible, when given the right support and help. I have travelled the world in my career and worked with so many artists, and I am very happy to be giving something back to the young people who are the next generation”.


“I believe in the young people of Croydon. We hear negative reports in the media a lot, however we see differently. We see young people that have a vision and drive and the ability to accomplish so much, they just sometimes need a helping hand, and we are here to lend that hand. With the right mind set and motivation, these kids can achieve anything”.
