Education and Learning

´╗┐Our Creative Learning programme is a place for our local community to discover new things - new skills, new friends, new ideas and aspirations.

Creative Learning uses the arts to develop creativity, unlock potential, explore diversity and celebrate identity.

Whether you’re young, and in love with theatre making, exploring your heritage or looking for new ways to excite and engage the students in your class; if you’re applying for a college placement or searching for an outlet for your creativity after a hard day at work – East Ayrshire Leisure has something for you!

Take part in our wide-ranging Creative Learning programme which covers areas of work including schools work, courses and classes for adults, talks and events, post show discussion, education packs and much more...

Creative Learning is also responsible for East Ayrshire Youth Theatre and works on engagement projects with community groups. The emphasis throughout is on learning, creativity and discovery for everyone!
