Invariably when we start a session with my young people we will always have one if not more person who says they are not very creative.
The magic of what we do at Alchemy Arts Collective during the workshops, always without exception, shows them that there are a multitude of ways to express their creative abilities. It’s the exploration, enquiry and the unfolding of this that is the most rewarding and humbling thing to watch (and how we ‘created’ our name).
A young person lighting up the room with the art they’ve produced, the dance routine or a poem that they never knew they would have the confidence to perform in front of their friends or a wider audience. All of this comes from that blend of creating a trusting and safe environment, with no judgement attached to whatever the process involves.
