After kicking 2015 off with our young carers’ curtain raiser at Sadler’s Wells, Create has kept the successes coming with mural unveilings, music performances and a film première at Bishopsgate Institute among many other exciting projects. Between January and April, we have delivered 358 workshops and over the next few months, we’re delivering hundreds more.

intu Milton Keynes has a new cow!
The iconic Concrete Cows sculpture in Milton Keynes has a new addition thanks to our young carers. Guided by Create artist Daniel Wallis, the young people constructed their cow from wood and ModRoc before painting it. The new cow was unveiled alongside our recently-painted mural designed by students with disabilities from White Spire School. More pictures here.
