Prior to the workshop or intensive that you have booked, you will receive a message from us by email, in which we ask for some more information about the participant. It is possible that this email ends up in the spam, so keep a close eye on your mailbox.

Every child should have the opportunity to participate in the Young Creatives project. A discount of 50% applies to Ooievaarspas holders. It’s possible that prior to the workshop we ask you to bring the Ooievaarspas with you. If you do not have an Ooievaarspas but the course fee is an obstacle, please contact us to discuss the options.
