Explore Creativity In Crewe – Project Overview

Explore Creativity is part of the Creative Careers in Crewe project, which has been designed in partnership with Higher Horizons and Cheshire East Council to signpost young people towards jobs in the creative industries. Participants will be invited to expand their knowledge and skills in a range of creative art forms through hands-on workshops, in disciplines including:


-Video Game Design

-Programming / Coding



-Paper Circuitry 

Who can get involved?

We are looking for young people with an interest in a career in the creative sector, between the ages of 11 and 25, who would like to develop their creative skill set in a fun, supportive environment across a nine-week evening course. 

The courses are split into three age categories; 11-13, 14-17 and 18-25 and are open to all ability levels with no previous experience of any given artistic disciplines required. This means those facing challenging circumstances; such as being a young carer, being in foster care or being not currently enrolled in education, employment or training (NEET) are welcome to join the course.

Rewards and achievements

Participants who complete the full course will have the opportunity to achieve an Arts Award Explore and will receive a £30 voucher to spend at Amazon.co.uk.

The award is an Entry Level (Entry 3) qualification which is part of the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) and is an ideal first step on a creative career path.
