Create Hub provides opportunities for people across the Riverina, specifically young people, to dream, create and explore their own creative interests with likeminded people. Create Hub consists of creative programs for young people, school programs, community programs, weekly workshops for adults and bespoke creative experiences incorporating the wonderful people, artists and culture from across our diverse region. Our after school creative programs for Primary Aged students for young people who want to further explore their creativity. The program includes specific arts and drama based activities but is more generally about learning to be a creative thinker and working beautifully in a group with other creative thinkers. Our programs for young people have been developed through adopting a youth arts, inclusive approach. At Create Hub we pride ourselves on creating programs WITH young people, not merely telling them what they should do. In week 1 we spend time delving into what creativity means to them, and designing a program based around their interest areas, and the skills that they wish to develop. To us, it’s much more about the creative process, building confidence, respecting one another as artists and finding a space to feel welcomed and encouraged, than it is about the outcome (mind you, the creative outcomes are usually pretty amazing too!) Our Adult Weekly classes on Thursday nights, provide a super relaxed environment to explore various artforms, while having a glass of wine and chat. We also offer NDIS support, Arts Management, Art Marketing and Producing services on a contracting basis. Create Hub is run by Riverina local, Claire Harris, who’s main aim is to ensure people across the Riverina have access to quality creative experiences, in a space where they feel comfortable, supported and challenged.
