The Year of
Take the 2023 pledge
What if being an independent creative meant feeling empowered, supported, inspired, and prosperous?
We think it can.
Repeat after us:
Commit to fewer, better projects
Seek out projects that fuel my soul
Prioritize rest and self-care rather than glamorizing “the grind”
Find joy in every step of the creative process
Treat my fellow creatives as collaborators, not competitors
Vet the platforms and tools I use to make my art
Share knowledge and best practices to foster a culture of learning and mentorship
Embrace the unique perspective I bring to my art and creativity
Practice my craft by finishing the projects I start
Use storytelling and creativity as a force for good
Pledging to The Year of Mindful Creativity simply means that you...
a) Will do your best to embody the tenets of TYOMC manifesto throughout 2023
b) Want some free goodies from us to help you do that
That's it! There's nothing else we want from you. True to our mission, the Storytelling Collective exists to help independent and interdisciplinary storytellers learn and feel supported.
