Create not Hate

This autumn, Create Not Hate are running creative workshops with John Lewis and Waitrose!
If you’re 14, these workshops will help you learn new skills and are great to put on your CV. If your ideas are chosen, your work will be made (it could be a film/ posters/ merchandise etc.) and seen by millions, if not, you'll still be able to experience all aspects of the creative process.

There will also be the opportunity to secure a paid placement in the John Lewis and Waitrose Content & Design Teams.

Create Not Hate’s mission is to get young people who are underrepresented in advertising, rewarding jobs in the creative industry.

The first workshop is taking place on 30th September at 4.30-6.30pm at The Greenhouse Centre - 35 Cosway St, London NW1 5NS.

If you enjoy it, we would love you to join us at two more workshops over the following 4 weeks, both lasting about 2 hours- but we will explain more about this and the rest of the programme at the first session.

We were previously taught that art is a paintbrush and paper but today has shown us that art is a huge world. City Lions is a good thing to do as it provides really good opportunities to visit places like this (Somerset House).
