What we're about

Are you creative? Then this is the group for you!

Creative eXchange is all about sharing ideas and enthusiasm across a broad spectrum of creative endeavours. The goal is cross-fertilisation of inventiveness and skills in diverse disciplines: This generates the vital energy and inspiration you need to be productive in your chosen field. Note: This meetup is a not-for-profit group.

Whatever your field of creative activity, it's extremely helpful to bounce around ideas with other positive, enthusiastic, inventive people. Members with a wide range of skills and talents, provide objective feedback, encouragement and constructive advice for each other. We exchange new ideas and get a different perspective on our current projects, always in a relaxed, fun and sociable way.

We promote regular social and creative meetings, workshops and collaborative projects, with emphasis on the exchange of ideas between creative disciplines - music, painting, photography, creative writing, poetry, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, textile arts, glass art, interior and garden design, illustration and so on.

We have an annual theme, deliberately open to wide interpretation (currently "Action/Reaction" - see project discussion here.) The aim is to use it as a starting point for invention and making, leading up to a group exhibition at the end of the year. We want to encourage as much diversity as possible in the creations we exhibit, including 2-dimensional art and as many other forms as we can practically show the public.

Watch out for up-coming meetups in which we will share, discuss and develop project ideas. Please don't hesitate to contact your group organisers to request or offer workshops on any specific technique or topic. Remember to Track discussions you're interested in, to receive notifications of updates.

Wishing you the best of creative energy!

Social evening...For NEW and old members alike!

Online event

In the current bizarre situation of social distancing and self-isolation, we are obliged to suspend face to face meetups until further notice. During this period, I invite you to share your creative ideas, questions, suggestions etc. by commenting on the monthly meetup event and sharing photos in the associated album. This event will be an online meeting via Zoom. See link below. This month: Our current theme is "movement", so you might like to describe how this relates to your current practice, or just suggest possible interpretations and what you might create in response to those ideas. Please feel free to post any photo or video to this event, to illustrate your ideas. Stay safe, keep well. [Photo by Belinda Fewings on Unsplash]

Check out CREATIVITY PROJECT 2 - CONNECTIONS: under 'Discussions'­ and 'Photos'

The continuing aim of Creative Xpressions is to promote and enhance creativity and to encourage cross-fertilisation of ideas across media and interests. Face to face meetings are highly valued and have proved to be informative, enjoyable and productive. Any member can offer to host a meeting at their chosen venue at any time, whenever they want to share skills, to discuss ideas, or simply to invite inspiration and encouragement. We would aim to have a meet-up in person every 1-2 months, but they will be arranged on an ad hoc basis. Because members are in ever more diverse locations, we will be using the on-line facilities of Meetup to keep the energy and communication flowing between meetings, and allow those who can’t meet in person to continue to participate. Any member can start a discussion on any topic relevant to creative thinking or doing. To initiate this new emphasis, we have opened up an online discussion and photo album which will serve as a focus for interaction over a period of 6 to 9 months. For full details, and to take part in this exciting new initiative check out the postings for 'CREATIVITY PROJECT 2 - CONNECTIONS' under the 'Discussions' and 'Photos' tabs.... https://www.meetup.com/creative-xpressions/messages/boards/thread/50790992 https://www.meetup.com/creative-xpressions/photos/27820595/
