Creative Connections Meetup

Mondays 7:00pm


Purpose: To alleviate isolation and forge human connections during this time of social isolation; and to foster and engage the creativity within.

Participants: Any creative, thoughtful folks are welcome to join us! We’re friendly and accepting of all!

When: Monday evenings at 7PM.

Where: At your own home on a computer or other device

What: For each session, we will focus on a word and how that relates to creativity in your life.

Be ready to briefly introduce yourself if you are new to the group
Later in the session, you will be able to talk briefly about how the word of the week has related to you in your creative endeavors over the past week.
If you wish to enhance your words, be ready to hold up or read or screenshare a creative piece!

Next theme word: At the end of the meeting, we will harvest suggested focus words from the participants. (Already used the words: sustain, illumination, kindness and hope) All words go in a pouch. One will be selected as a word to ponder until the next Monday night.

Who: Sessions will be run in Zoom by members of First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church of Fitchburg.
