Turn inspiration into creative action
Quest Digest #28 👁🗨 Welcome to the Quest Lab - our new, free event.
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 hit the half-way mark of our Bring Your Own Theme Creative Quest. Super proud of this brilliant collection of humans for really leaning into their own curiosity’s. Here is a small cross-section our what our current Questers have been doing to explore their themes this week:
🏛 Ian has been visiting a whole array of different museums to gather inspiration for his new classroom this September, exploring his Quest theme of Inclusive Classroom Environments.
😁 Christina has been keeping a diary of all the moments, big and small that bring her delight as part of her Delight themed Quest.
🌳 Melanie reimagined all the books on her bookcase to be about Trees on her Tree themed Quest!
’To all the trees I loved before’ would be my pick… how about you?
Let us know in the comments.
Turn Your Inspiration Into Action 🧪⚡️
Aug 8th (6-7.30pm BST)
The Quest Lab is a monthly idea jam and accountability group for your creative projects. RSVP here.
A low pressure, supportive and playful space.
In the past our Questers have turned their inspiration into films, dinner parties, new art-forms, sound collages, tarot decks, audio guides, poetry-inspired-clothing... and more. Check out some previous projects here.
💡 you have an idea that won't leave you alone but you can't make the first step.
💭 you are filled with inspiration but don't know how to turn that into an idea.
❤️ you already have projects bubbling but want to co-conspire with other creative humans.
It definitely helps if you have done Creative Quests before... but is not an issue if you haven't.
🗓 Date: Tuesday August 8th
⏱ Time: 6.00pm - 7.30pm BST / 1.00pm - 2.30pm EST
Future dates to be announced soon. Let’s see how the first one goes!

🌎 Our galvanising friends at Creative Conscience have launched their programme for anyone who wants to tap into their creative talents and use them to positively change the world. I am an alumni of this programme and recommend for anyone near the start of their journey building something they love.
🌊 I have been listening the Water People podcast - about incredible people who live their lives dedicated to and inspired by water. About 15 mins into their opening episode they hit a real vein of what living a watery life entails. Super inspiring.

My own Water themed Quest has been incredibly inspiring so far. I’ve been learning about what it means to have a deep water connection and live a life with one foot on land and one in sea. I’ve also been shocked to learn how many people around the world do not have clean water access.
Inspired by these two feeling..
Over the next 12 weeks I will be swimming a marathon (42km) raising funds for Water Aid. I’ll be doing as much as I can in the sea - deepening my water connection with every stroke. This is a seriously daunting task but I’m feeling galvanised by the challenge! I’ll be posting regular updates over on my Instagram.
💙 You can donate to my Water Aid page here.
