Create is currently shut down for the Covid-19 lockdown and our staff are on furlough. However, we are continuing to encourage creativity through our 'design an escape room' competition. The competition is for under 14s and the winning design will be turned into a kit and sold for charity.
Create on the Square Community Interest Company originated in 2015, out of the desire of local residents from the Hesters Way area of Cheltenham, UK, to transform our community by encouraging community-based creative enterprise.
In 2016, we converted a formerly disused retail unit on the Coronation Square shopping area and set out to "Create on the Square". The aim is to support the ongoing regeneration of the Square, and to have a base for our not-for-profit activities.
The CREATE model is a simple framework to help people to turn ideas into beneficial enterprises, through experimentation, based on Lean Startup business concepts.
We Champion local assets, people's talents and other resources, in order to stir up new ideas.
If necessary we run new experiments on the same idea, or otherwise persevere and Expand the idea to make it more successful.
We have built up a selection of professional services to enable small businesses/groups to develop your enterprises on a limited budget.
We are keen to encourage all kinds of creative enterprise, including businesses, voluntary groups, and, in particular, other social enterprises addressing social and ecological issues.
