Are you a new mum or mum to a little one under 5? 

Creativity Island is an Arts Council England Funded project which will create an online space for mums to connect, create and look after their wellbeing in 2021. 


Creativity Island – For New Mums (Coming 2021)

Hello, I’m Claire and I’m a mum and a creative.

Whilst on ‘maternity leave’ in 2021, I want to create space for a brand new community for new mums and mums with children under 5 at home in the UK. 

It’s called Creativity Island and it will be a chance to connect, up level your wellbeing practises and create together! 

If the pandemic has taught us anything it’s the importance of community for our mental health and I can’t wait to share what I’ve got in store for you.   

Fill in my research survey and sign up to hear more via the link below.
