Cheshire East Council has been awarded £15,000 to support young people to develop creative skills.
It is part of the council's Shift programme, which promotes digital arts and creative technology across the borough.
'Crewe: Beyond Ultimate Reality' is a programme funded by the Arts Council to engage young people aged 12-17 in critical thinking and creativity, through exploring interactive activities and workshops.
Working with creative arts organisation Re-Dock, the group of young people will design creative arts activities for children, which will be rolled out in holiday programmes throughout the year, culminating in a high-profile event in October. The activities will take place at Crewe Library, in the lifestyle centre.
'Beyond Ultimate Reality' is the next level of engagement, building on the past year of Shift's digital activities. This is aimed at older children to build interest in the creative industries and digital sector of Cheshire East. The programme of activities will focus on creative thinking, working together as a group and introducing digital technologies, using a creative and critical method.
As well as attracting young people interested in developing creative and digital skills, the council is also seeking artists across all disciplines, who would like to gain more experience in this area, to get involved.
Bursaries are available to support up to four artists living in the borough, -- at any stage of their career -to develop skills in delivering this type of project and to learn more about digital arts and delivering workshops.
