The aim of the ‘Academy of Creativity’ is to make creative activities more accessible to the youth of Walmer Township. Core elements are drama classes, choirs, instrument lessons and visual arts classes for almost 200 children and youth. The classes are taught by established local artists and closely supported by a social worker.

Learners may explore their talents and skills on beginner-, intermediate and advanced level, inspire their peers through performances and exhibitions and increase their personal levels of self-confidence, resilience and work ethic in the process.

Regular visits to local productions, events and exhibitions form integral part of the curriculum.
