{Spring} Group for Creatives | 2021

The Group for Creatives is where you go to get your monthly check-in with your creative self, support for your projects, and stimulation for your ideas.


Start your new year with a commitment to your creativity.

This group began in Spring 2020 with a core group of creatives in various fields. This group has flourished in this time, birthing new projects and gaining clarity on their artistic purpose and voice. And now, the doors are opening for the next cycle. Are you ready to re-awaken your creativity alongside other artists?

Who can join?

This is exclusively for creative people, no matter if you are blocked, active, dormant or thriving. Artists, writers, designers, performers, poets, musicians, photographers… you are welcome.

What is the format?

The format varies slightly each time, depending on the work we do. It is an intuitive process, led by artist Claudia Palmira. We use art therapy and experiential methods to explore the subconscious territory, both to utilize in and unblock our work. You receive unconditional support for your emotions, process and projects, as well as practical tools and assignments to further your practice and commitment.

Sessions take place online via Zoom. The sessions will be for three hours and include:

  • Individual check-ins
  • Art, experiential & therapeutic activities
  • Working/making
  • Action and commitment sharing
  • “Homework” assignments
  • Art appreciation

Each member must commit to a 3-month period of attendance (3 sessions), one for each season. During that time, no new members will be admitted. After the 3-month cycle, there will be a chance to stay on or exit the group. Content is always new, no session is the same.

The space is held and group work guided by artist, Claudia Palmira, who is also a certified art therapist and clinical experiential specialist.

We meet on the first Monday of the month from 4 – 7pm Central Europe Time. The cost is 60 Euros per session.
