Why Creativity?

“Creativity is…a wider ability to question, make connections and take an innovative and imaginative approach to problem solving”



CCE believes in the fundamental value of unlocking the creativity of young people in and out of formal education and of enabling them to experience and access a diverse range of creative and cultural activities because this:

  • brings intrinsic pleasure and benefits;

  • raises their aspirations;

  • improves their achievements and skills;

  • unlocks their imaginations; and,

  • brings about lasting improvements in the quality of their lives.
