About us:

Welcome all artists, writers, scientists, actors, photographers, business people, researchers, inventors, entrepreneurs, musicians, actors, craftspeople, architects, computer lovers, filmmakers, business people, Youtube video-makers, philosophers, PEOPLE OF CREATIVE INTERESTS of any kind. 

Anyone is welcome, even outside the area (though it is probably be more difficult to do #4 of list below).

Here is our mission:

1. SHARE: Feel free to shamelessly post your work and show it to everyone here. You can post finished work or unfinished work and asked to be critiqued or for suggestions. Only work that explicitly asks for critiques can be critiqued. 

2. SUPPORT: Feel free to share your creative aspirations, goals, and/or vision. Please list venues or anything where we all can showcase work. Also, ASK ANYONE FOR HELP OR RESOURCES to reach your aims.

3. COLLABORATE: We can spontaneously form collaborations on creative work (especially INTERDISCIPLINARY). I encourage cross-discipline stuff, such as engineers working with artists (I seen this happen, its amazing). We can contribute our talents to each other. For instance, you might want to learn a skill from someone, an artist might need to find a web designer, or someone might know of way to sell artwork. 

4. PLAY: We will get together time to time to discuss ideas, and also set up creative play-dates in the New Jersey/NYC area. We can set up events to learn how to improv, make crafts together, make sushi, do magic, have costume parties, make really bizarre treasure hunts. We can also ask each other to do creative things, like post challenges on this page for each other. Come on, we are creative, we can come up with PLENTY IDEAS FOR FUN! We can also just throw a party.

May the Fun Begin!
