Create Paisley began in response to local young people looking for a safe, inspiring space. At the time, there were so many capable, creative young people. Create formed as a partnership between local churches, youth leaders and YWAM and set up a monthly open-mic night.

As well as open-mic nights, Create offers creative workshops and gives space for young people to have their say and shape where Create goes.

Create also supports young people throughout the month, to be present in the lives of young people, and meet them where they were at. They offer regular arts workshops, youth mentoring, a youth forum and a fortnightly open-mic drop in.

Values: creativity, empowerment, community, love and justice.
