CreACTive Centre programmes include those that are run regularly for children by the CreACTive Catalysts and workshops run by members of the Caversham Team for on-site support and skills development. These programmes include the new area of the digital arts that is a powerful tool for development, skills transference and advocacy for these communities.


1. CreACTive Centre Catalyst Programmes

CreACTive Catalysts run workshops, reflecting the skills gained at Caversham Residencies for the children and women at their CreACTive Centres. These include drawing, painting, beadwork, embroidery, textile printing and more.


2. CreACTive Centre Workshops run by Caversham Facilitators

With the aim of monitoring and supporting progress whilst building skills and capacity for catalysts and participants at CreACTive Centres, the team of facilitators, Jabu Mtheku, Sbu Mvelase, Hlengiwe Dlamini travel to the CreACTive Centres to run workshops of between 3 and 5 days duration. The participants are introduced to printmaking, painting, drawing, collage, mixing colours, making folders and printing onto textiles.


I never thought I can make art, let alone make beautiful art from potatoes! It was strange making art using food, but also it was very exciting.  I am also very excited about going to Caversham Centre for a residency. Siyabonga Mafu – Grade 10
