The Manifesto

Creativity is the core of who we are, the spark that drives us. Creativity keeps us awake and open to the world around us. Creativity connects us. 

To be creative is to be curious, to seek awe.
To be creative is to be reflective, to take time for contemplation.
To be creative is to be open, to welcome newness into our everyday.
To be creative is to tap into the vibrancy that exists within all of us. 
Creativity is not an afterthought. It is our reason for being. 
We embrace and nourish our creative selves by acknowledging that the process is the point. We take a step without knowing exactly where we’re going. We experiment. We ask questions. We cultivate an inclusive space for learning, sharing, and collaborating. 
We believe that creative lives are dynamic lives. We make art, we get our hands dirty, and we take time for reflection. We share, we support, and we build community. We inform and we inspire.
