In May 2018 Creative England announced their annual list of “the most exciting, innovative and disruptive creative companies and individuals across the country” – a list that includes Knowle West Media Centre!
In their announcement Creative England highlighted a “move towards technology and creativity merging to create meaningful solutions to real-world problems” with many of the companies shortlisted “championing diversity, and giving a platform to unheard voices.”
They praised our team for “exceptional work within the local community” and concluded that KWMC is “working on a community level to drive real change”.
We’re thrilled to be included in the CE2018 list and want to take this opportunity to thank our fantastic team of staff and volunteers for their dedication, our partners and funders for their ongoing support, and the communities, artists and makers we work with for their enthusiasm for trying new things and working together.
We’re excited to be expanding our programme this year and want to enable more people to access new manufacturing technologies, set up their own enterprises, develop new skills, and address the issues that are important to them and their communities.
If you’re interested in getting involved with KWMC or working with us then we’d love to hear from you: drop in Monday to Friday, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0117 903 0444, or have a chat with us on social media @knowlewestmedia.
