Creative Skills Academy

Grow your creative skills with free workshops

A programme of unmissable workshops to help people develop your skills to work in the creative and cultural industries.

The creative skills project formerly known as DIY HIGH SCHOOL/DIY LIFE SKILLS came back for 2021 as Creative Skills Academy

Creative Skills Academy gives our Queen Mary University of London students and our community vital extra practical skills for working in the creative and cultural industries. These include making videos, photography, tax, CVs, public speaking, social media for work and WordPress/blogging.

DIY LIFE SKILLS is supported by Humanities and Social Sciences at Queen Mary University of London. The workshops are free for our students and our local community.
