Explore Creativity (Crewe)

Hosted by MAKO

Explore Creativity is part of the Crewe Creative Careers project, which is designed to help young people from challenging circumstances get into creative careers.

If you’re interested, we will support you to expand your creative knowledge and skills as you get hands on with a range of engaging creative subjects, including:

  • Animation
  • Graphic Design
  • Computer Game Design
  • Programming / Coding
  • Photography
  • Film-Making

Why take part?

As part of the project, you will work towards the Arts Award Explore. The award is an Entry Level (Entry 3) qualification which is part of the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).

To help enable young people from challenging backgrounds attend the sessions, a range of incentives and support has been arranged. These include refreshments during the sessions, possible transport grants and those that consistently commit to the course will be rewarded as you can earn vouchers for attending each session. If you see the project to the end will receive an extra bonus reward during our awards ceremony.


These sessions will be held at: Crewe Library, Moss Square, Crewe, Cheshire, CW1 2BB

Crewe Library (and lifestyle centre) is a beautiful new build. We’ve worked in this venue before and can confirm it has a fantastic amount of learning resources.
