Our Story

as creatives began life as a group of six freelance creative practitioners who all felt that the sum of our parts gave us a far greater chance of fulfilling our shared aim to see Creative Learning at the heart of education. With backgrounds across the Creative Industries, including classical acting, illustration, theatre directing and sculpture, we were all determined to keep space in our lives for our individual practices while finding time to work together to design a range of creative learning workshops and programmes, that we could offer to schools and the wider community. The success of this way of working led us very quickly to set up as a limited company and we have never looked back!

Nearly ten years on our mission remains unchanged. We believe more than ever in the power of the arts to transform lives, fuelled by our first hand experiences. We have expanded to work with a wider group of associates, all specialists in their fields, and we continue to work together both nationally and internationally to find new and exciting ways to engage children and young people in their learning.

 

“… the relationships as creatives built with staff and students have been incredibly strong and have underpinned an astonishing programme.” (Holly Porrino, Deputy Head Teacher, Newton Le Willlows High)

“I can wholeheartedly recommend the work of as creatives which has been instrumental in developing and sustaining creative learning and teaching in our school.” (Gary Begusch, Assistant Headteacher, Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College)
