Hi everyone,

Thanks for sharing this Ann: )

It was such a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the CreaTures project.
It was properly sustaining soul work through very difficult times!

There are many wonderful nuggets in the framework,
<https://creaturesframework.org/> designed to improve connection and
collaboration between creative practitioners, researchers, funders, and
policy-makers focused on positive eco-social change.

But please allow me to direct you to my three favourite nuggets of the day.

1. A short piece on "creaturelyness" which we established as an invaluable
and timely mode of cooperation.

2. The CreaTures Co-Laboratory Catalogue offers an overview of experiences,
insights and outcomes that emerged from 20 experimental artistic
productions developed within the project, including Furtherfield's The
Treaty of Finsbury Park, and the Hologram (first cultivated at Furtherfield
and now alive and kicking-ass in the wider world).

3. The nine dimensions for evaluating creative practices were derived by
interviewing those involved in the CreaTures experimental artistic
productions. We hope that among other things, they may help support funders
to retune funding requirements in a way that allows transformative creative
work to be properly resourced.

I hope you will find your own pathway through it and let us know how you
find it.
