CreativiTEA: Episode 03 is Coming TOMORROW!
WHAT IS CREATIVITEA?
CreativiTEA is a monthly, streamed get-together where artists of all forms are welcomed to highlight our work and combat a topic that inhibits us.
The first half of the show shines the spotlight on works of art – be they paintings, crafts, writing excerpts, cooked dishes, or more – from members of the community. If you would like to submit a piece for consideration, feel free to DM it to me or place it in one our Discord’s submission channels. Whoever is showcased will receive a message from me, asking permission beforehand.
The second half dives deep on a poignant topic, decided at the beginning of that month. Every week on my Discord channel, we break down a separate aspect: personal experience, scientific research, and problem solving. The last week culminates in our communal stream.

WHEN AND WHERE IS CREATIVITEA?
CreativiTEA streams will be held the last Saturday of every month on my Twitch channel. If you miss one? No worries: you can catch the podcast on Spotify and Apple Music, watch the VOD on my Twitch (for the two weeks thereafter), or find a recording on my Youtube channel.
This month’s CreativiTEA will be held on Saturday, September 25th at 12 PM EST. Our topic? We’ll be talking all about “HOW TO IMPROVE CREATIVE COMMUNITIES”, so be prepared to brainstorm.
WHO IS CREATIVITEA FOR?
It’s for creatives of every kind. It’s for painters. For writers. For chefs. For musicians. For seamstresses. For game developers. For streamers. For photographers. For craftsmen. For blacksmiths. For tattoo artists. For poets.
It’s for everyone. For the friends you have that could create masterpieces if they were unrestrained by doubt. For the relative whose potential you see, but whose problems you see all the more. For the strangers who need to be assured of their strengths and assuaged while they work out their weaknesses.
It’s for you. For the you that is, that needs a helping hand. For the you that could be, that you don’t believe will be yet. For the you that will be, once you sit with a big cup of tea in good company and help yourself be free.
WHY HAVE CREATIVITEA?
Because I believe that creatives need community – a community that can solve problems that have plagued us in isolation for millennia. After over a year of living alone, we know we cannot survive by ourselves. We need one another if we have any hope of shouldering these burdens and walking through hardships, hand-in-hand.
But change doesn’t happen with just empty affirmations and soulless pep talks. Change comes when we address the real, deep-seated issues inside of us. It’s not pretty, but it is powerful. And at the Homestead, there’s no shame in the change.
I hope to welcome you home soon. If you could invite others by sharing this post through whatever venues possible, it would be much appreciated. I will see everyone Saturday, September 25th at 12 PM EST – I’ve got a seat saved just for you.
