Create Clubs

Be challenged.  Be inspired.  Be creative.  Have fun!     Let the journey begin…

Create clubs provide opportunities for children or adults to explore ideas.

The clubs integrate the arts, sciences and language with the individual creativity of the participants and foster novel ways of responding to artistic challenge.  

The participants work with the Create team of professionals e.g. actors, artists, choreographers, dancers, musicians and storytellers over the period of a year.

They learn the skills and then use the knowledge gained to inspire their creativity. The participants create a piece based on the art form, where each reflects the point of inspiration and is a unique combination of an art form with language, maths or science.

The sessions involve warm ups, challenges, games and participants are taught new skills in art, circus skills, dance, drama, music and storytelling. 

Also available are a series of five workshops.  These focus on different aspects and are tailored to your requirements.  Please contact Debbie for further information.
