Building upon the work of the TVCO project, we aims to encourage and facilitate community creativity and learning through technology. Its key focus is to support disadvantaged people and communities to explore and learn about content creation and media production/delivery aspects of ICTs.

The project will operate across an existing network of community ICT centres in the Tees Valley where basic ICT training provision is already established. e-create encompasses a wide range of creative activities and projects aimed at capturing peoples' imagination and interests. It seeks both to further develop the basic skills of those familiar with technology and to engage people who have not yet participated in ICT learning.
