Creative Alignment is a process to facilitate authentic creative development.
The process is simple enough for people to experience just by going for a walk and robust enough to be used for all our development needs (e.g. for our own development and for the organisations and communities we are part of).
Creative alignment focusses on what we have in common, not what divides us, it starts from the assumption that we are all in development and helps us consider how we can support each other to be our true creative selves.
Simply focussing on how we can make it easier to be ourselves enables us to design and deliver a comprehensive range of activities that have a positive and lasting effect on our lives, groups and communities.
Features of the process:
- An open process, feel free to adopt and adapt it to suit your own development.
- A universal and comprehensive process that can be applied to every stage of any developmental activity (by individuals, organisations and communities).
- A personal, self-organised process you can implement in your own practice – you provide your own content, exploring the process at your own pace and investing as much or as little as is useful for yourself.
- A social process to facilitate shared exploration and creative collaboration, with opportunities to get peer-support and advice from other people on the programme.
- A strategic process that helps us make the best use of our resources to achieve our long term goals.
- A sustainable process – helps to facilitate sustainable social change by ensuring all our activities take place in the context of our long-term development as individuals, groups and communities.
- An on-going process with no false starts or abrupt stops.
- A cyclical process that follows a simple development cycle that is repeated regularly to help us maintain a development approach in which we keep a positive attitude and learn from our experience.
- A non-linear process, we are all at different stages in our development, the process does not assume that we are all ‘blank slates’ or that we start from the same place or are able to invest the same about of time and energy.
- A modular process each element has the same basic features – you can join in at any time and it doesn’t matter if you’ve missed a session
