Creativity is... Connection

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 Loneliness Awareness Week, 10th - 14th June and Carers Week, 10th -16th June 2023

“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.”

Think about the people or things in your life that give you a sense of connection.

It’s a great way to think about who and what you’re grateful for.

Create something that represents the importance of connection to you, and why you feel grateful for it. It can be a drawing, poem, short story, animation or any other medium.


How could you help someone else feel a sense of connection? Or make someone feel welcome? What would be the first steps to reach out to them?
