Creative Practices for Transformational Futures

Creative practices have already shown transformational potential in the area of social cohesion and environmental citizenship, but they are often fragmented, poorly resourced, and badly understood. The CreaTures project (Creative Practices for Transformational Futures) demonstrates the power of existing – yet often hidden – creative practices to move the world towards eco-social sustainability. The key rationale for the project is that transformations towards more sustainable ways of life are urgently required.

Through experimental co-creation, observation, and evaluation of diverse transformational creative practices, followed by a direct engagement of various stakeholders (including policymakers, researchers, artists, designers, and members of the public), the CreaTures project aims to generate insights that would allow creative practitioners to focus their efforts more effectively and policy-makers to see the merit of employing these techniques.
