Get involved

Creative Playground is nothing without you, especially if you don’t currently feel like you are arty.

It’s a chance to have a go and be part of something bigger. You can get involved in small ways or develop more in depth connections.

Dip your toe in – you might have fun, feel like an explorer, become more confident or happier.

You never know who you might meet or what might happen. Go on, we’ll look after you.

Explore how you can get involved below.


Playmakers are volunteers who take part in the programme, make decisions about it and encourage others to get involved too. Everyone is welcome to become a Playmaker – you just have to live in Crawley and be open to trying new things. Maybe  you have a passion for reading, online gaming, listening to music, watching films, or am-dram. Perhaps you’re a business owner,  hair-dresser, delivery driver, teacher, or taxi driver. Whether you work in a pub, at Gatwick Airport, a care home or anything in between – this could be for you.
