We work with many creative professions, including artists, musicians, actors, film makers, photographers and writers as well as creatives that work for small indie companies.

Creatabot organises events and productions that inspire creativity, including the regular event “My Favourite Things” which encourages creatives to talk about the subjects that inspire them.

On May 19th 2013, Creatabot produced the site responsive theatre performance ” Survived”, which saw an empty building turned into a post nuclear clinic.

In May 2013 Creatabot organised Medway’s art vending machine ” CreataboX”, which is also part of Fuse Festival – Medway’s outdoor arts festival. Fuse is funded by Medway council and the Arts Council.

Our aim is to promote and inspire independent creative people and help develop communities by using creative projects.

Creatabot is inspired by the likes of the Vienna Secession, who pioneered the belief that art should be accessible to all and that money is not a creative persons aim. They therefore concentrate on supporting creative individuals rather than the creative industry as a whole.

Any funds generated are principally reinvested into the project, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for contributors and owners.

Background

Creatabot was set up by Natasha Steer in November 2010 and is run from her studio in Kent. Natasha was previously Editor of the South East hub of Creative Boom, which continues to be a successful online creative industry magazine. Having through Creative Boom connected with the local creative community, Natasha decided to set up her own website that concentrates solely on creative individuals rather than creative industry as a whole. Being a craftswoman herself, she feels that support and inspiration helps to motivate creative people and adds to their success.

Note to Editors : Natasha Steer acts as Director and Editor of Creatabot and is the main point of contact – for all enquiries please email natasha@creatabot.co.uk
