Creative Village Skills Exchange Programme

The Skills Exchange Programme is part of The Creative Village; a brand new pilot project by Creative Crawley, based in Crawley to test the potential of creative hubs, workforce development and the creative economy in Crawley, West Sussex.

Are you up for collaborating and working across different creative specialisms?


This part-time practical training and skills exchange programme takes place in Crawley from September ‘24 to June ’25 and is for people aged 16 – 30 years who want to get involved more in the Creative Industries. There are ten paid places available (£14 per hour up to £2000).


Participants will get to work with creative professionals in a range of arts spaces from recording studios to galleries and develop new skills, contacts and ideas to help them get a job that they love.
