We deliver a multidisciplinary development programme to inspire innovation and creative thinking:
Talent is universal
Creativity is intelligence having fun
Educate and Empower
Shake Culture Works is inspired by the belief that the desire to learn and create is one of the most human qualities there is; and nobody should be excluded.
By developing talent, we lever social and cultural change.
Our cultural engagement programme uses the arts for engagement and offers first-hand experience on creative involvement as audiences, practitioners and organisers.
Play Local sessions bring children and adults together with artists, makers and technologists to test and explore challenging ideas and concepts in one-off events.
This is your chance to try things like animation, gaming, textile design, dance, theatre and graphic design.
The pop-up University Programme brings special interest groups together with academics and artists to inspire and get people thinking about their position in society.
We invite researchers to give short 20 minutes presentations. After the presentations participants work with one of our associate artists to ‘translate’ what they have learned from the academic concepts into everyday experiences.
This project helps communities have an informed voice on issues that concern them. We think there is an emotional divide between the achievement spirit experienced in universities and the experiences of everyday people. Through this process, we hope to bring the ‘everyday’ into academia and empower participants by providing academic perspectives on everyday life in local communities.
This is an intensive 12 week programme of 2-hours weekly sessions led by an associate artist. The programme is available to both corporate clients and special interest groups.
Using mind mapping and visual techniques the group translates action plans into objects that can be used as reminders of life-changes and recovery journeys. After the sessions participants have the opportunity to follow a training programme and become associate artists in the Pop-up University programme.
We think this project is key to fostering local creative growth and promoting regional equity. This project works to power individual creative confidence, greater innovation and full participation in cultural life.
Proud of what you are and proud of what you can become.
