Welcome to CCS

Our community is built around the Enablist ethos, a warm fusion between Artist and Enable.

An Enablist's role is simple and threefold - 

1. Create. Showing up regularly to explore the ideas and projects that set you alight and matter most to you. 

2. Share. Sharing your work with others so they're inspired not just by the art itself, but your example of being an active, thriving artist.

3. Encourage. Being part of a creative community and actively supporting others in creating and sharing their important work.

To help you in each of these three areas, use the tabs named Create, Share and Encourage at the top of any page.

If you need help, ask a question using the Help tab at the top, and be sure to check out the How to use CCS guide too.

Thanks for being a part of our community.

Welcoming New Members

I wanted to ask your advice and help with something if I may? We get a fairly steady trickle of new members joining us on CCS - about one a week on average this year. But aside from the occasional exception like Sammy who joined and got stuck straight in, most members, despite welcome messages from me and others on their page, and a welcome message from me to their Inbox, remain in obscurity, most not even uploading a profile photo.  Something’s not working.  Why join a new community if you’re…

2014 DE-CLUTTERING !!!!

Let's do this together! Throw it OUT. The extra magazines. The extra clothes. The unread books. What IS in that box you keep tripping over in the garage...? What are you keeping that figurine for? OR, maybe your clutter is mental...and it's something that's holding you back from your DREAMS ! That passing comment that your parent made when you were twelve. That relative who discouraged you from making art. That regret that keeps nagging... Or, maybe your schedule needs de-cluttering:…

Positive Energy Station... (For when you need a little boost of positivity...)

This thread is a place where anyone who feels they need a boost of positive energy can ask for it. Whether you have an exhibition coming up, or are going through a difficult period with offline relationships, or suffering from poor health, this is the place to let us know, so we can all rally round and boost you up... In short, a little corner of CCS where you can come and say "Please think of me, I need some positive thoughts and energy right now..." Thanks to Ev for this fantastic idea for a…
