Finding the people with the skills needed to help realise ideas can be extremely difficult, especially when you lack the necessary network of contacts. The Creative Co-Op is an enabler for all, allowing people to source collaborators from their peers
As a creative, realising ideas is important - it allows you to develop a portfolio, add to your CV, make contacts and, most importantly, build up experience. The majority of young adults with big ideas often lack the contacts or resources to realise their ideas, and have no other option but to develop and produce the work on their own.
This is an inefficient state of affairs - not only must people spend time learning new skills, but it means that practitioners with the necessary skills are missing out on an opportunity to build their own experience. What's more, these specialised practitioners would presumably be better equipped for the tasks in question.
But how do you find the people with the skills your project needs?
There is a need for a platform that allows people with similar interests, ideas and goals to find one another and begin pooling their resources of skillsets, contacts, knowledge and creativity to make big ideas happen.
