Creative work demands effort, skill, dedication, and can even be physically demanding.

Besides our brains, we engage our hands, voices, and entire bodies in the creative process.

Many creatives who were just climbing back after co-vid are now being impacted by the recent strike. They deserve consideration and compensation.

Below are some easy ways you can help keep the creativity flowing.

Buy Their Work

Artwork always makes a great, unique gift!

Streaming is cool, but buying music is even better!

Check out initiatives like #BandcampFriday to help musicians get 100% of their hard-earned coin.

Share their work

If you’re strapped for cash and can’t help with a purchase, a little extra free promo can help someone reach a new audience for even more opportunities.

Rethink AI

AI has its uses, but I’m here to tell you, if you rely on it too much, we can tell.

You’re all starting to look and sound the same.

Hiring a good writer or designer can help with strategic thinking and add that human touch to help you stand out from the crowd!

Would you want to live in a world without art?

To all industry professionals and entertainment enthusiasts, I urge us all to embrace creative work as genuine and valuable labor. Creative workers deserve to make a decent living. It’s not just a whimsical pastime or a fleeting hobby; it’s the oxygen that breathes the color into our day-to-day world.
