Messages in a Bottle

A CreaTures engagement experiment

Messages in a Bottle is a CreaTures engagement experiment corresponding to the project’s Task Open Creative Practices Training Guidelines. The task calls for an accessible guide to help current and future creative practitioners make effective use of the project’s key research outcomes.

Rather than being traditional “guidelines” (connoting a list of instructive statements), Messages in a Bottle aim to serve as an accessible, relatable, and appealing space to engage a wide range of creative practitioners.

The Messages amplify voices of creative practitioners, which often hold limited authority in how transformative creative practices are understood, valued, and supported through policy and other related systems and strategies.
