Offer young people an opportunity to develop their skills in the area of arts, crafts and design, and bring them into contact with arts and design professionals. Those are the goals of a new development programme called ‘Arts, Crafts and Design’ at Noordkade in Veghel set up jointly by Design Academy Eindhoven and CHV Academy, Circle of Talent in the Municipality of Meierijstad. The collaboration launches in January 2021. 
Arts, Crafts and Design Talent Class 
The new Arts, Crafts and Design Talent Class, offered in conjunction with Design Academy Eindhoven (DAE), is a three-year development programme. Teenagers in the 14-17 age category spend 12 half-day periods per school year at Noordkade in Veghel where, supervised by professionals from DAE and CHV Academy, they take part in lessons and masterclasses to develop their skills in the fields of arts, crafts and design. At its Noordkade venue, CHV Academy avails of well-equipped spaces and studios, including a craft foundry, jewellery workshop, photography studio with darkroom, and ceramics workshop with a unique salt kiln. The new programme launches in January 2021 with a half-year trial. Participation in the trial is free of charge.  

CHV Academy, Circle of Talent 
In the Municipality of Meierijstad, a number of partners from the fields of art education, business world and the municipality are contributing to the Circle of Talent. By means of structural education provided by professionals from the arts, children and teenagers can discover and develop their skills through a broad range of arts programmes for primary and secondary education in the form of talent classes that prepare a pathway towards third-level education in a creative discipline 

In this way, children and teenagers can explore a professional career as an artist, theatre maker, musician or dancer, equipping them with skills and experience that will be invaluable to them throughout their adult lives. After already launching a successful Dance Talent Class and Music Talent Class, CHV Academy is now partnering with Design Academy Eindhoven to set up an Arts, Crafts and Design Talent Class.
