‘The Creative Place’, a non-profitable arts and crafts business by ‘Creative Youth Opportunities’ has recently opened its doors to the community in Seaham.
The business, based on Station Road, aims to provide opportunities for children to get in touch with their creative side, while also occasionally offering activities and workshops for teenagers and adults.
Michelle Harland, managing director of ‘Creative Youth Opportunities’ explained what the people of Seaham can expect from ‘The Creative Place’:
She told SRNews: “It just seemed like a natural progression to have a regular base that we could work from and where we could collaborate more with the different organisations and individuals that we already work with.”
In their mission statement, they said: “We aim to deliver quality, creative projects to inspire, increase interest and involvement in the arts. We work to engage children, young people and families in positive activity and self-development, to help people develop skills, boost their confidence and raise aspirations through creative experiences.”
To get involved in any activities that ‘The Creative Place’ offers, customers are able to book online or over the phone, as well as in person.
