Our unique personal development program is designed to re-energise busy people.

Who is this for?

Designed for busy working people looking to rediscover their energy and passions, to more confidently pursue what makes them happier.

You don’t need a creative background to benefit, with the program being ideal if:

  • you want something more personal and impactful than a masterclass or short duration seminar

  • you relate to the feeling of being “stuck in a rut”, or sense that you have “lost that spark”

  • you are looking to gain more self-confidence in effectively communicating your thoughts and ideas

  • you want to meet like-minded people to inspire, and be inspired

  • you are looking for a unique staff incentive program

  • you need some “me” time to enjoy New York City with a fun and unique experience

Our Story

Husband and wife, Jeremy and Angie, were busy professionals looking for a unique personal development and growth experience. They wanted to learn new skills, yet have sufficient time to reflect and really explore and connect with the local community in New York City. They developed their own itinerary of creative pursuits, including acting and painting classes and committed to getting to know one new person every day. They came back so energised and inspired they wanted others to benefit from a similar experience, and Creative Cities 21 was born. And now, they would love to invite you to come on a journey to rediscover your energy and passions.

Why Creative Cities 21
