Creative States is a visioning platform for a community of artists, designers, thought leaders and engaged citizens exploring futures we want to live into.

Our Creative States

Six ways of engaging our world to move us, forward:

Playful
Asking us to meet ourselves, others and the world around us in real, honest and profound ways.
Joyous
Delighting our inner being with genuine moments of warmth, affection, beauty and optimism.
Wondrous
Awakening curiosity and tickling amazement for our wild, imperfect and precious existence.
Thoughtful
Inviting us to reflect on our past generously, situate in our present differently, and engage with our future whole-heartedly.
Human
Asking us to meet ourselves, others and the world around us in real, honest and profound ways.
Daring
Challenging us to bend our imagination, venture bravely into the unexpected or unknown, and dream boldly about our capability to transform.

We fuel vibrant conversations and field creative visions through media, research, exhibitions and events that imaginatively probe who we might become. Our full website launching this Spring. Grab a taste here of what’s to come.
