Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

FEAST, making great art happen across Cornwall

Beacon Academy, Bodmin // Building an Artist


Building An Artist is a project delivered by KBSK Performing Arts CIC which aims to improve wellbeing and to support young people with low self esteem and struggling with mental ill health. Through dance, music and creativity, the program incorporates confidence-building activities through the arts.

Through Building an Artist, we set and achieve realistic goals whilst designing the project around each individual child, giving young people the space to express themselves and co-create the final performance/product. We have witnessed hundreds of children and young people grow in confidence within the Bodmin community – through pop-up social classes, and outreach with additional needs schools, children out of education and working with young offenders. We look forward to working with more children at Beacon Academy through Building an Artist and supporting them to discover their excellence and talent.
