花椒直播

A welcome to our 花椒直播 centre

Creativity is the capacity to imagine, conceive, express, or make something that didn鈥檛 exist before.  

Durham Commission on Creativity and Education, 2019

Creativity is everywhere. It is valued as much by athletes, engineers, mathematicians and scientists as it is by artists, writers and composers.  

So, it is in this generous world 鈥 defined by a belief that creativity exists in all places and all sectors 鈥 that the 花椒直播 Centre for Creative Industries is finding its niche. And it is here where we support our creatives to build 21st century skills for future careers.  

Nearly all our skills building starts with a curricular diet that you would expect in an art school environment鈥uch as confidence in line, colour, form and composition. But that鈥檚 also complemented by a firm foundation in the essential skills that everyone needs in language, digital skills and maths.  

With these building blocks in place, our students have the freedom to pursue a specialist field鈥f which there are many across the ecosystem that we鈥檙e creating here at 花椒直播.  

Each and every day I鈥檓 thrilled to see students developing their talents in painting, pattern cutting, casting, editing, millinery, darkroom processing, intaglio printing, studio lighting鈥nd so the list goes on. What unites them 鈥 what unites us 鈥 is the joy of making and creativity. 

We use an industry description of 鈥楾鈥 shaped skills: the horizontal line being an expression of those essential and core skills that give our students their grounding, and the vertical line describing that specialist bit that makes each creative unique.  

But a final element of the Morley skills mix is probably the most important of all: it is the bit that the creative industries excel at, and yet perhaps the sector鈥檚 best kept secret.  

That is supporting the development of students鈥 transferable skills. 

The skills that employers consistently recognise as in highest demand including teamwork, communication, initiative, and problem solving. The skills that help you remain resilient, work with others and value what you do.  

And this is why our centre is committed to curating moments of collaboration, both within and outside the college walls, where students find opportunities to sharpen their skills in working and communicating with others. 

It may be easy to think that with this approach to skills that every student turns out the same. On the contrary, we are proud of the diversity of our students: every journey is unique, and every outcome is different.  

It is what makes the 花椒直播 Centre for Creative Industries the most exciting place in London to study. We are proud partners in every student鈥檚 journey to find their authentic self.
