Early years: Geronimo!

Our programme for early years centres on the Geronimo! project which introduces children and their parents to creativity and risk in play. 

Our successful Geronimo Torry pilot has now been completed, thanks to funding from the Youth Arts Collective North East.

Sustaining life as a creative 2020

Creative Learning invites applications from Aberdeen based creatives working in any art form and at various stages of career, seeking to define and professionalise their creative practice. 

Sustaining Life as a Creative (SLAAC) is a bespoke professional development programme now in its fifth year. SLAAC provides support to creatives who have already built up their artistic skills to a graduate or equivalent level and have an ongoing commitment to their creative practice. Individuals may be finding it difficult to refine, sustain or move their practice forward. 

The programme builds on individuals’ skills, confidence and resilience required to pursue and sustain a career in the creative sector. The eight-month programme involves eight days of reflective and practical learning with experienced mentors and guest speakers who will present their own creative journeys, share their experience and knowledge of how they develop and sustain their own creative practices.


Creative Learning are holding an information event on 11 January 2020.


The deadline for applications is Sunday 26 January for more information on how to apply visit the Creative Scotland website
