Creative Projects

Our programs are tailored for people with a passion for the creative arts. Below you'll find detailed information on each of the courses we offer. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Overview

We are after volunteers for our short creative programmes. Gap creative is focused on delivering creative workshops in drama, dance, music, art, jewellery and photography into the Great Rift Valley, Kenya. volunteers learn, teach and explore. We welcome all skill levels whether your a hobbyist, student or professional theres a place for your passion.

The project has grown organically and has a real focus on creative development through volunteers sharing their skills and learning from local artists and industry professionals volunteering. The educational content to be gained from the project is achieved through informal and action learning. Through application - volunteers apply their skills learnt in their own creative field and expansion- building on their knowledge and experience by being challenged to use their imagination and organisational skills to bring together interactive and meaningful projects. It is the challenge of using their creativity in this manner that really distinguishes us from other voluntary projects. Expect to run an hour long workshop (times can vary) for 3 to 4 days a week (with our support). This will require some pre planning and post workshop reflection time as well.

Our projects run 5 or 6 times a year in two month cycles. Therefore you can come out for anything from 2 weeks to 6 weeks. Some volunteers come out for their summer holidays others a two week get away. We believe you can achieve more in short focused programmes rather than having too much time aimlessly drifting along!

We also encourage volunteers to develop their own workshops in accordance with their own sets of unique skills they may have such as voice, water colours, mime, clowning or percussion…so bring your craft ,share it, develop it or come and learn one.
