Creative Network

Creative Network - London is a peer support network for anyone involve in participatory arts across London, to support each other now and build foundations for the future.

In 2019, as part of my role as London Development officer for Creative Lives, I initated a series of conversations themed around creativity and inclusion in a different London borough each month, partnering with organisations including Applecart Arts, Camden Disability Action, Joy of Sound and Walworth Living Room. These events were were free to attend and open to anyone involved in participatory arts across London.

During lockdown, I hosted our regular monthly meetings online and began to form a sector peer-support network. We formalised into Creative Network - London, a regional chapter network of Creative Lives.

In autumn 2021 I started Creative Network - Old Kent Road for anyone interested in creative engagement in the Old Kent Road Area. This network was initiated through a poster call out on local bus stops. We have a fortnightly lunch club on Thursdays at Avalon Cafe, Juno Way in South Bermondsey.
