Pathways Icon for Creative

A creative is an artist and practitioner who stretches the boundaries of their creative discipline in a new and innovative way. Often a creative seeks to combine aspects of entrepreneurship with their creative work to be able to identify a pathway to support their artistry sustainably over time. They innovate both within their artistic fields and also in finding ways to bring their art to those who value it most.
