Join our new virtual Quester community
👁🗨 Quest Digest #24. Full of free events, inspo and support for your creative life.
THE QUEST DIGEST by Creative Quests is a treasure chest of ideas, stories & opportunities exploring what it means to live an illuminating, creative life. Delivered when inspiration strikes.
We are reinitiating regular contact after an extremely busy May, delivering our most recent Quest exploring Storytelling - our 9th collective enquiry of this evolving experiment.
Just like Quests gone before - it was a jet-fuelled adventure filled with new learnings, new friends and new ways of experiencing the world. Rather than bulldoze ahead, I wanted to take a moment to sit with the peculiar post-Quest glow
After a Quest there is always this feeling I can’t shake. Despite coming to the end of the collective enquiry, it feels like a personal beginning. It’s hard to describe. But it’s like the Quest themes stick to you somehow. They seep into your consciousness. Perceptual osmosis perhaps. You still notice the theme in your thoughts, conversations and surroundings all the time. Like the trace of a past love or a holiday over too soon.
💡 It’s made me think about the spaces we create for integration when it comes to creativity. All the books we read, courses we take, videos we watch, conversations we have… How do we resist the urge for more input and really live with the learnings?
~ Do you have tips / tricks / rituals for integrating new creative ideals into your life? Let us know in the comments.
Introducing… Quest Club.
After hosting month-long micro communities for the last 2 years… today we start experimenting with something a little more sustained and hopefully helpful for digesting CQ learnings. Quest Club is our private Discord and we’d love to invite you in!
The purpose of this space is to inspire, connect and support each other to lead meaningful creative lives and bring our ideas to life in a casual and joyful way.
👁 What happens in the Quest Club?
Sharing conversation, inspiration, resources & support for each others creative lives.
Live virtual events including: campfire conversations, lab sessions for your creative projects, games nights, guest talks + more. See below for what’s on in July.
Opportunities to contribute to Channel Twelve studio projects.

🎨 In love with these puddle pattern paintings
I’m keeping these words close in mind as we ease into the summer.
