A Creative Christmas

Dear Friends
Creative Christmas

Mindful Moment…  
“Christmas gift suggestions: to your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.” ~ Oren Arnold

Our first pop up Creative Café a great success
On 22nd November 2016 Creative Croydon held their first pop up Creative Café. The event was kindly hosted by Friends in Need and MIND. Twenty six people came along and took part in storytelling and singing workshops, as well as an open art session. There was a lovely warm atmosphere and people left wanting more. So watch this space for more pop up Creative Cafes in 2017!

Making it a Creative Christmas
Midwinter can be a tough time – long dark nights and the commercial, work or family pressures around Christmas can leave people feeling low or lonely.   At Creative Croydon we aim to use creative activities to make a positive contribution to community growth  – on International Human Rights Day 10th December, Catherine Pestano will be sharing song with FGM Survivors in Croydon as an expressive tool for wellbeing.  Creativity can become a powerful tool of peace and wellbeing in winter.  We invite you to join us at warming, peaceful events to uplift and inspire this December.

Please do contact as with any enquiries at creativecroydon@gmail.com

We wish you all a very Creative Christmas and Magical Midwinter
