CREATORS Program FAQ

Do I have to be artistic to be a good CREATOR?
At PeaceLove, we believe everyone’s an artist! If you don’t see yourself as one, that’s OK. You can be a great CREATOR without being confident in your own artistic abilities.

What will I learn in the training?
During this intensive 3-day experience, you will learn about expressive arts, how they support mental wellness, specific expressive arts facilitation techniques, and be trained in 6 different workshops. You will also make new friends, have lots of fun, and gain insight about yourself as a creative and expressive person.

What is my commitment as a CREATOR?
Once you have been accepted into this program you commit to the process of becoming a Certified CREATOR. This includes participating in the full training, facilitating at least 12 workshops within one year, and providing us with documentation about the experiences you lead. We support you in this process not just with supplies but also through ongoing communication and guidance. We also connect you to our active network of CREATORS for continued growth and professional development. You will receive programmatic and facilitation feedback, as well as measurements of the impact you are having on your community.

What does it mean to be certified?
As a Certified CREATOR, you have successfully met the checkpoint requirements and have earned our stamp of approval. We are thrilled to have you continue with this program because you exemplify our organization, our approach to mental health, and are delivering high-quality programs to your participants. If you do not achieve Certification in your first year, that’s okay! We will support you in working to meet the requirements the following year. After you achieve Certification, we will continue to track and measure your impact, celebrate your progress and achievements, and remain engaged in supporting you in implementing these programs in your community.

Will this training allow me to teach others how to be a CREATOR?
No, this training is for you. If you know someone who would like to be a CREATOR, encourage them to apply and attend one of our trainings!

How are the scholarships awarded?
Our corporate partners and private funders provide partial scholarships to individuals whose organization may not be able to afford the cost of the CREATORS training. Scholarships are determined by monies available, the estimated impact, and specific requests from our donors.
