Founder & MD

Alexis Michaelides

"The journey began in 1999, when I first started teaching event promotions to a small group of young people on a housing estate in Waltham Forest. Nearly twenty years on and not only are we changing lives through Big Creative Training and Academy (BCE) but we can now extend our vision through the launch of Creative Works, a shared workspace and community for the 21st century in the heart of East London."
