Who is this for?

Designed for busy people looking to learn new skills and rediscover their energy & passions.

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

  • you want something more personal and impactful than a typical training or seminar
  • you relate to the feeling of being “stuck in a rut”, or sense you have “lost that spark”
  • you are looking to gain more confidence in effectively communicating your thoughts & ideas
  • you want to meet like-minded people to inspire, and be inspired
  • you need some time to reflect while enjoying New York City with a fun and unique experience
  • your business is looking for a unique staff incentive program

Our Story

Husband and wife, Jeremy and Angie, were busy professionals looking for a unique learning & 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

There are so many people juggling work and family commitments, struggling to find that special professional and personal development program.

Creative Cities 21 was designed by people who understand you, as that was us.

Our unique 5-day program is designed to re-energise busy people. You will be part of an intimate group benefiting from the combination of activity-based creative workshops, whilst immersed in the awesome New York City. You will leave inspired, reinvigorated and with a renewed sense of passion and possibility.

So why Creativity? There is a heap of evidence* that creativity in your life makes you more energised, productive and happier, so we have incorporated a number of fun, creative learning modules, including art, music, innovation and communication (using techniques learned by actors).

The 21 hours of experiential learning are provided by the city’s leading creative studios (including the Metropolitan Opera) and you will gain fresh perspectives from a local entrepreneur at a private and exclusive event.

There will be plenty of time to explore like a tourist and soak up the sporting, cultural, culinary and health & fitness activities the city has to offer. You can live like a local, explore like a tourist and learn with the freedom of a 5-year old!

Come along to Creative Cities 21 by yourself, with your partner, a business colleague, or a friend.
