Creative Collective

Everyone is creative - some of us enjoy puzzles and crosswords, and some of us are painters or enjoy writing or singing our own songs.

What is Creative Collective?

Creative Collective is a program that hosts art events and creates art resources like origami tutorials, colouring sheets, etc. Whether you're a student, staff, or faculty, you can connect, relax, and unwind through crafts, motion, music, and more.

With the Dietrich Model of Creativity as a guide, we explore different kinds of activities to maintain our well-being through creative learning and expression - however that looks to you.

What if I'm not artsy? 

No experience is ever necessary and all events are free and open to SFU students, faculty, and staff.

January was Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Creative Collective supported SAAM by curating a consent playlist and creating an art mosaic, made by students, staff, and faculty. 

Sexual Assault Awareness month (SAAM)’s theme was centering the voices and perspectives of Black, Indigenous, and Peoples of Colour to eliminate sexual violence and to create safer, more equitable communities.
