Survey for Creative Community Champions

Creative Lives offers support to creative group co-ordinators through FREE resources, peer-to-peer support, guidance and exciting opportunities.

As the pandemic lockdown begins to ease, we're providing support to creative community champions across England as they start to think about running their activities in person once again. If you lead, organise or provide a venue for creative cultural activities that take place regularly in social groups then get in touch via our short contact form. 

At Creative Lives, we celebrate, encourage and champion people expressing themselves creatively in their everyday lives - and practising their creativity socially with other people. We know that local champions, those that instigate, coordinate and facilitate creative activity to happen in their local communities are instrumental to this and offer support, advice and resources to help them. This campaign is intended to connect with new and existing Creative Lives Champions - to offer new ways to share, learn and collaborate with others. 

Our aim is to promote and increase active participation in creative cultural activities across England. This encompasses everything from traditional amateur arts and crafts (singing, drama, dancing, quilting, painting, photography, writing, etc) to digital arts, street art, creative cookery and gardening - from knitting a jumper to playing the guitar, making a short film to arranging flowers, from self-governed constituted amateur groups to informal get-togethers and individual everyday creativity - from the 'serious amateur' to the occasional participant. 

Monthly sessions have been launched Autumn 2021 as part of the #CreativeNetwork programme of online discussions.
