ABOUT THIS ORGANISATION

CREATE Paisley is a small local youth arts charity based in the Renfrewshire Area. Create began in 2009 as a monthly open mic night held at the UWS Union offering local young people a safe, fun, sociable place to attend at nights. Through the success of the open-mic night Create then began to offer Creative Workshops in which they were very much young person focussed and the young people had their say in which direction Create would go.

 

2011 saw the change in Create from one open mic night every few weeks to supporting the young people more regular throughout the month. This is the point that Created wanted to be more present in the lives of young people and moved to offering youth mentoring, youth forums, art workshops and a fortnightly open mic drop in.

 

The success of regular support and workshops led to Create becoming a registered charity in October 2012 which allowed for the goal for Create to be increasing the support for the local young people and being able to offer more opportunities that fit the vision for a better community. Create now run daily sessions for young people, offering them sessions to explore different creative arts activities with the support from youth workers and creative professionals.

 

Create's main vision is to see young people transformed through the main values of the charity which are: creativity, community, confidence and finding their voice.
