Creative Divergents

Creative Divergents is a few things: an online showcase, a competition, an experiment, a creative networking site… Some of the things it has been founded on include an appreciation for people willing to push boundaries in creative ways, the desire to bring more attention to works that may not fit neatly into easily defined categories, and a belief in the significance of dialogue.

From 2009 to 2012, Creative Divergents showcased works from around the world and gave out thousands of dollars in awards. The project is currently on hiatus.

The green, trees, flowers, and tall grass were refreshing, a reminder of a different type of life after being surrounded by so much concrete and glass. The thistle growing along the edges of the paths reminded me both Read More →
