Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following eight projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Creative Kernow


A professional working environment for creative people


Krowji: workshop or shed (Cornish)

Krowji, an up-cycled grammar school in Cornwall’s former industrial heartland, has provided an invaluable workspace for hundreds of creative businesses since 2005 and continues to grow, with a new state of the art eco building opened in June 2015.

Cornwall’s largest creative hub, Krowji provides studios, workspaces, offices, the Melting Pot Cafe, meeting rooms and other facilities for a wide range of creative businesses at the Old Grammar School buildings in Redruth.

It’s home to a vibrant creative community which currently includes painters, jewellers, furniture makers, ceramicists, textile artists, web designers, theatre companies and musicians as well as several of Cornwall’s key creative sector agencies such as Creative SkillsFEASTCarn to Cove and the Cornwall 365 Project, all of which are part of umbrella organisation Creative Kernow.

Krowji welcomes all those involved in cultural work: from creative practitioners to organisations that provide services to creative businesses. With a uniquely wide spectrum of work created by its tenants, Krowji has a powerful collective impact quite unlike any other.

A connected, supported, professional and above all creative and vibrant working environment, Krowji is constantly driving forward the exciting evolution of the Cornish arts and cultural sectors.
