REcreative provides behind-the-scenes access to the contemporary art world through exclusive filmed interviews with artists, designers, students and critics as well as mentoring, networking and opportunities to support young people into an arts career.

The annual REcreative Film School, in partnership with Film Africa, offers training for young filmmakers at the beginning of their career. Led by industry professionals the sessions enable participants to gain a basic practical experience of camera work, learn how to navigate the film industry, and develop their own unique storytelling voice.
