MD Creatives has a vested interest in making a positive impact within the community which is the reason behind Blank Canvas by MD CIC. Miguel identified a need for a free community provision after seeing how people used dance as a form to release and escape, from this he wanted to create something which would remove barriers allowing more people to access classes within the company and after building up the repertoire of MD he was then able to create Blank Canvas by MD CIC.
MD want to captivate and engage the whole household whilst instilling family values, enhancing practical and transferrable skills, as well as making sure they cover everyone’s interests which include performing arts, creativity, cookery, hairdressing, make-up, DJ’ing, protective services and more. Including their partners and sponsors who support and deliver sessions for Blank Canvas by MD CIC, they welcome in guest speakers, have volunteers from the in-house team and encourage their Commercial Company Dancers to assist in leading workshops or classes.
Blank Canvas by MD CIC is a way to give back to the community, be a support system for both young people and adults alongside being a hub where people can ask for guidance whether it may be for personal or professional development.
