Exciting news! Today we launch our Crowdfunder to support our Get Creative project which offers free places to local residents who would otherwise be unable to attend. Support us if you can!
We recognise that not everyone can afford to attend our courses so have been offering free places to local residents on an ad hoc basis. This isn't financially sustainable long term so we are asking for support for open this programme up, to allow up to 100 local residents to get creative with us for free.
Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible, which is why we want to offer free places on our regular courses rather than to segregate those who can pay and those who can't. However, we also recognise that some people aren't ready to integrate into mainstream courses so we will also be putting on courses tailored specifically to their needs.
