To be a Creative …
To some, it's only an adjective; to a Creative, it's clearly a noun that describes those who add a new way of thinking to everything they do. They color outside the lines, bring art, music, dance to mundane spaces, add color, vibrancy and excitement to communities. Creatives turn ideas into reality, through imagination, innovation and entrepreneurship. They seldom "draw a blank" and thrive on collaboration and partnership with other Creatives.
We are interested in the needs of all creative individuals who have a sincere commitment to their art or creative work in any and all of its forms. If you consider your work to be a form of art or creative expression, then we probably will too.
Artists need not make any income from their art or creative work, or pursue their practice full time. We consider individuals to have a commitment to their art or creative work if they have or are developing a body of work, have studied or are actively training in their art/creative work, have a desire to grow as an artist or work professionally in their creative field and/or are actively engaged in the creation and expression of their art.
