We are proud to support the Sharjah Performing Arts Academy (SPAA) and their commitment to nurturing young talent in the production arts.

At Creative Technology (CT), we believe in the importance of nurturing young talent and providing the resources they need to succeed which is why we are proud to support the Sharjah Performing Arts Academy (SPAA) and their commitment to training students in the performing arts sectors.

We were particularly thrilled to support the recent ‘Under the Dome’ Costume Gala Night, where we saw first-hand the incredible work of these students and we were blown away. It was truly inspiring to see students and staff from all programs and cohorts come together to support one another and celebrate each other’s talents. As a company, we are honoured to have played a small role in this event and we look forward to continuing to support SPAA and their amazing students in the future.

Creative Technology Middle East partnered with SPAA three years ago and has supported the academy not only through supplying various video equipment for the students to train on but by also delivering technical information and guidance to students to further their knowledge and passion for entering the Production World. CT’s industry professionals have already provided several engaging classes, sharing their years of experience and expertise around video elements within the live events industry.

CT is very keen to engage with the academic sector and with SPAA in particular as this will help increase the number of skilled technicians within the region.

“We are very pleased to be able to offer support to this worthwhile Academic initiative, and we look forward to working with the staff and students in developing the production arts skillsets within the region.” – Lee Forde, Creative Technology UAE General Manager.

Professor Peter Barlow, SPAA Executive Director, said “A massive thank you to our creative industry friends, Creative Technology ME, for the excellent donation of projectors for our students to work with. It is my sincere hope that SPAA graduates will soon be working with them, having acquired the necessary skills, because of Creative Technology’s generosity!”

Jacqui George, Programme Leader (Production Arts) explained, “We are excited about our collaboration with Creative Technology Middle East. With these projectors, our students will be able to enhance their learning and easily access equipment for them to be industry-ready; we look forward to our future partnerships.”

“Our initiative is to inspire and support local students in the UAE and help them on their journey into the events world. The Middle East hosts some fantastic large-scale and innovative events each year. We want to encourage talented local students who are passionate about events to have an active role in the industry by giving them the knowledge and practical experience. We are excited to see what comes from this partnership, and we look forward to many more positive collaborations throughout the year.” – Andy Reardon, Creative Technology Middle East Managing Director.
