What is Practice Practice?

Practice Practice is a network of accessible resources for artists balancing creative practice and everyday life.

Artists are often taught to prioritize production and commercial success over everything, including relationships, rest, and mental health. This expectation is harmful and unsustainable. We highlight strategies that are grounded in sustainability, community, and individual well-being.

We encourage artists to transform their practices by defining creativity for themselves.

Resources:

Practice Practice: How to Keep Creating is a workbook for creative people (like you!) It is designed to nourish your creativity and help you reconnect to your unique creative practice. We offer practical advice and tackle sticky subjects with care and humor. Learn to change your work habits, find collaborators, avoid burnout, and enjoy creating. Define creativity for yourself and build a practice that fits YOU!
