Creativity is... Community

This June, the creative prompts are brought to you by Month of Community

“The Month of Community is a time to come together to celebrate everything that makes our communities great. Thirteen organisations work in partnership to help shine a light on all of the amazing things happening in our communities and encourage connection with each other and the places where we live. Millions of people take part throughout June to say cheers to volunteers, connect with their neighbours, welcome refugees, support carers, raise awareness of loneliness, or make a positive difference where they live. Choose how you’d like to join in, or do a few, it’s up to you. Here’s a video to explain more!

This week’s Month of Community partners are Refugee Week, 17th - 23rd June / Windrush Day, 22nd June / The Great Get Together, 21st - 23rd June

“We believe in the power of community to shape a positive future for people and planet – it all starts with our connection to others. Creativity can help us to break down barriers and prompt those conversations and moments of connection helping to build a sense of community.”

What does community mean to you? What makes it special? How would you like to celebrate it? It might be connected by place, interests or lived experience. You could draw an illustrated map of your community, or write an ode to your community.


What would you gift to your community?
