As part of RIGHT OF WAY, we're creating an online creative community here on Mighty Networks: Coastal Creatives. With this community, we bring together those ready to embrace their creativity and express themselves. We offer content from exciting professional artists, designers and writers, alongside creative tasks and digital workshops. Our aim is to empower each other to discover new paths of self-expression, and celebrate the beauty of local landscapes. This community is for anyone interested in creativity or making - it's for those who draw, walk, write, act, dance, make videos - and for those who have no experience at all!  We offer a space to come and try something new.
