Our Story

Husband and wife, Jeremy and Angie, were looking for a unique travel experience, where they could learn new creative skills, yet have sufficient time to really explore and connect with the local community in New York City. They developed their own itinerary, including acting and painting classes and came back so energised and inspired they wanted to share it, and Creative Cities 21 was born. And now, they would love to invite you to come on a journey to find your own stronger creative voice.

Why Creative Cities 21

We re-energise and inspire people through creative escapes in the great cities of the world. By combining the benefits of acting, painting, innovation and travel we ignite your creativity, helping you realise your personal and professional potential.

In our 5-day experiences you will be part of a diverse and supportive group enjoying 21 hours of active learning, provided by the city’s leading acting and art studios and a global innovation specialist.
