EGO Creative Academy

Reach your potential and become a trained actor or backstage creative. EGO Creative Academy is our most comprehensive offering for neurodivergent adults aged 18+. We offer unique, immersive training in two fields, with participants choosing either performance or backstage production. You’ll be attending weekly, full-day sessions and working as part of a professional ensemble. This is an Adult Social Care service for Coventry & Warwickshire, meaning your place can be funded through your social worker (Service No. COV 7823). Get in touch with us if you'd like help accessing this service.
