C4ward March Day 1: Defining Your Creative Mission

Tell us the big “why” behind the creative work you do.  Here are a few questions to consider as you write:

  • Why do you exist?

  • What is your purpose here on this earth?

  • How would you express the “why” behind your creative work in a few short sentences?

  • What do you want to be remembered for?

  • Can you think of three or more key words that embody the reason why you create art?

  • If you were to write a short, memorable, and inspirational t-shirt message about the purpose or mission for your creative work, what would it say?

As an artist, respond to this prompt in any way you would like and that gets your creative juices flowing. If just plain old writing doesn’t excite you, then write a poem, a rant, or a song. Sing or perform your answer and post the video. Take a photo, draw or paint an image. Use something you have created previously and use that as a starting place.  Watch the first 10-11 minutes of the Ted Talk below for further inspiration:
