Take part in our Easter Hothouse

The Nerve Centre's Creative Hothouse returns this Easter to give young people aged 11-18 a platform to pursue their music, film, photography and design dreams.

Creative Hothouse is an intensive five days of creation and performance workshops from April 5-9, 2021, led by renowned industry professionals. Push your creative talents to the max and hone the creativity, composition and collaboration skills of masters and novices alike.

How does it work? 

~ Choose one of the creative areas to focus on throughout the week: Music, Film, Graphic Design or Photography

~ You will both develop new skills in your chosen area and get the opportunity to work collaboratively as a group of creatives e.g. you could be showcasing those graphic design skills for one of the newly-formed bands, editing a music video or curating a photography exhibition, depending on the area you choose to specialise in. 

~ You will be mentored by accredited industry professionals who will provide hands-on training and attend panel talks for knowledge building and networking opportunities. 

Don’t miss out - spaces on the hothouses go fast! All you need to take part is a creative and adventurous spirit.

This is a FREE programme. For more information please contact Head of Music at Nerve Centre, Marty McGill: m.mcgill@nervecentre.org 

Funded by the Department for Communities through Northern Ireland Screen, delivered in partnership with the Making the Future Project. Making the Future is funded by the European Union's PEACE IV Programme and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
