About the workshop series
Our ESF Get Creative! Cultivate Programme workshops are open to everybody – no dress code, no qualifications. We strongly believe everybody is creative, everybody ‘writes’. Writing is what you think, say, see, touch, feel and do – you just need to choose how to express it. These workshops will be fun, engaging and accessible – valuing everyday creativity.
The focus will be on exploring ways to express yourself and find your voice, where your creativity is also part of your wellbeing.
Cornish residents, who have not attended an ESF funded workshop previously, are entitled to ONE free workshop, and are subsidised by the European Social Fund, subject to completing a participant form and providing ID. Please use the ESF supported Cornish Resident ticket link to claim your free workshop.
For those outside of Cornwall, the first workshop cost is £15 for adult wage earners | £10 for those unwaged or with limited means.
We have 3 bursaries available for anyone ‘Runnin’ On Empty’ at £5 per session. These will be offered on a first come first served basis.
