Ways of Making is a two-year creative programme for young people in Medway who are not in education, employment or training.

Delivered in partnership with Medway Youth Service, the programme is designed to support young people to explore and develop their own creativity by experimenting with ways of making, together.

The first year of the programme will be facilitated by artist Savinder Bual, whose series of workshops from January to June 2024 at Nucleus Arts Centre in Chatham will invite the participants to explore innovative ways of making through engineering, balance, movement, and collaboration; to build new skills and to engage in creative experiences. 

Sessions will respond directly to the interests of the young people, who will have agency in shaping the direction of the project. Across the 19-weeks, there will also be opportunities for them to meet guest creative professionals and educators – who will share their knowledge and advice about working in the creative industries – and attend free cultural visits in the local and surrounding areas.

Details on the second year of the programme will be announced later in 2024.

Ways of Making is a Cement Fields project delivered in partnership with Medway Youth Service. Supported by the Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust and Arts Council England.
