Here’s the idea for IBM Creatives interested in participating and looking for a little creative inspiration or motivation. Sometimes it’s fun to step outside what you normally like to do creatively, and it can also be fun to do something with or for other people too. So, as a community, we’ll come up with some ideas that we’ll use as our ‘creative mission’ – it could be a topic, theme, or even a photograph/image. Anyone who wants to participate can do their own creative expression of the mission (paint, draw, write, dance, song, etc.). Then share/post your creative effort with the group, and we may also vote on the group favorite for that mission at the end of each month. Here are some of the initial mission ideas that were submitted through our LinkedIn group:

-Noisy
-Personal History At A Glance
-Sparkle and Shine
-Nature
-Red
-Fabric

And, for our first mission, we’ll do NOISY as that seems like a fun way to start. So IBM Creatives, show us what NOISY means to you. Share it by posting your link as a comment to this blog or to our Facebook or LinkedIn group. You could also email the link to us at ibmcreatives at gmail.

Most of all, have fun!
