Creative Community Model
“Creative expression is most often accompanied by a feeling of shimmering joy.” Rollo May
The Creative Community Model is our complete model and methodology for working with young people. It was created by our co-founders based on years of experience in delivering life changing programs for youth and adults. We’ve used the model in a huge variety of settings and circumstances (we specialise in week-long residential youth camps) and through our trainings, we can teach you the basic principles of the model and help you to understand how to apply it in your own work in order to strengthen your impact.
The model is based on the premise that humans are essentially creative and that we all benefit from genuine and authentic connections with other people – in other words, great communities. We believe that people are more likely to flourish when they feel understood and supported by the community around them, so our model shows people how to set up and sustain a trusting, supportive and judgement free environment where everyone feels safe enough to be themselves.
The Creative Community Model is user-friendly. Even a one-day training session will give you a wide range of activities that will immediately impact the quality of your interaction with youth. It is also adaptable across a wide range of cultures and a broad range of issues. Most importantly of all, it engages even the most reluctant of participants.
