#CommsCreative: the creative communications archive

The #CommsCreative Challenge is a free, monthly creative communications task to:

  • help you boost your comms creativity
  • support and get inspiration from others who are sharing their #CommsCreative work online

I set these challenges because I think we often get bogged down in day-to-day work, and it’s useful to join a club like this that pushes us to try new things.  

There will be challenges to get you more creatively writing, drawing, video making, designing and all sort of other things.

Creativity is not just a talent, it’s muscle. We need to exercise it to get stronger 💪 

They’re monthly, because we’re all busy, and this is something we can all commit to.

Scroll down the page, and you’ll find links to past tasks to complete at your own pace (or you can pick and choose the stuff that looks good).

Principles of The #CommsCreative challenges:

  • The resulting thing doesn’t need to be good, it’s about playing with it.  Van Gogh was probably crap the first time he tried painting.
  • Taking part is fun, but also a good opportunity to think about things a bit differently.
  • Share your efforts! And chat to people who have shared theirs!  We’re all going to keep each other motivated and inspired.

Ways to take part

Not all these tasks are accessible, but some will be, so I hope people with impairments can take part in some or all of these. 

I have psoriatic arthritis and I know that drawing isn’t an option as sometimes my hands are knackered.  

In those thankfully rare cases, I might use Canva to make an graphic instead of doing a drawing, or maybe even structure words on a page in an or visual way interesting way.

Perhaps if you can’t take part you can offer an alternative version of the task that I can share with others?
