Happy & creative new year greetings

This can be a funny ol' time of year neither feeling
like it's not really a 'new' year
yet with the festive season still milling around the
edges of our sight lines
but not really feeling the 'momentum' that we could easily
believe we are 'supposed to feel this time of year...

So what could you do to start off 2016 in
authentic & creative ways to stay centred in yourself?


We have decided to be more proactive with our own creativity this year as it can be such a challenge to carve out 20 minutes here and there to put pen to paper, glue stick to collage and, well you get the idea...

We are taking part in 64 Million Artists project to encourage the UK nation to be more creative. Not massively into the idea that we are all artists as we believe you don't have to be an artist to be creative - but anything that gets us making more time for personal creative projects is good by us...

How could you take part in this being more creative everyday challenge?


'Caring for myself is not self-indulgence,
it is self-preservation,
and that is an act of political warfare.'
                                           Audre Lorde

To keep the dancing mood of day 3 #64millionartists challenge alive on 28 January, join us and at least 500 other dancing Londoners for the greatest deep-house extravaganza breakfast-time has ever seen.
Yes that's right you can get your dance on before work now!

We'd like to share about Helen Cadbury - a big inspiration to us at Open To Create... HQ.

We hope you find her writing, work in theatre and her unfolding life story a touchstone for what can happen when you plug away at following your creative and life dreams. We are especially thrilled that Sean Denton will soon be gracing our TV screens in Chasebridge (working title) based on Helen's two crime thriller To Catch a Rabbit and Bones in the Nest

We loved both books so much we  devoured them in a night (like being a kid again with the torch under the duvet!)
