An indie ground-up initiative by two creatives for other creatives to hold space for & navigate the uncertainties that the pandemic brought to our livelihoods, our creative capacity & practice.
+ Nurture a sense of direction and tangible plans for navigating the future in participants
+ Reduce the mental and emotional strain of navigating change in participants
+ Create a support system for creatives through community creation
+ Equip underserved creatives with reusable tools and frameworks for navigating uncertainty in the long-run
+ A resilient creative community with robust social capital, that is more resilient and less prone to burn-out
+ Create a repository of resources, from tools to insights, born from this project to be shared in the form of an online wiki in perpetuity
+ Designed & hosted 24 Online Share Exchange Sessions: Webinar style sharing sessions as well as workshop sessions focused on doing the work. These create a safe space for participants to unpack struggles and issues, surface group wisdom and to find direction forward through empathetic sharing and discussion.
+ 7 Check-in calls: Emotional, technical and resource sharing check-in calls at the end of the program to cement the culture of turning to each other for support to draw strength from each other.
+ Total number of participants: 73
+ Co-written & designed 4 playbooks: Workbooks for creatives to pivot their creative practice
