Our work begins with a commitment to recognizing and honoring the value of each person’s creative voice and unique ideas. Through positive encouragement, Creator Collaborative offers creators the freedom to explore what’s in their imaginations, and to open their minds to possibilities they hadn’t considered before. We build creators’ self-confidence, and at the same time, help them respect the value of their fellow creators’ voices and perspectives, too. By tackling creative projects together, creators practice communicating their ideas, leading, following, sharing, listening, and becoming an important piece of a bigger puzzle. The result of this process, along with diligent, mindful practice, is not only a final artistic product, but also a better understanding of positive collaboration, flexibility, acceptance, empathy, and self-expression.
