> A Cre­ative Net­work, Resource & Community

#TheX­Fac­to­rycom
Our mis­sion is to help col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly curate Cre­ative, Do It Your­self, & Do It Togeth­er endeav­ors. Our goal is to help pro­vide con­nec­tiv­i­ty, pro­mo­tion, and avail­able resources for the Cre­ative, DIY (do it your­self), and DIT (do it togeth­er) communities.

We believe that YOU hold the key. We believe that cre­ativ­i­ty mat­ters, and is an inher­ent tool of per­son­al free­dom. Every­one is famil­iar with the “starv­ing artist” arche­type, but why does it per­sist? Must every­thing cre­at­ed by the gen­er­al pop­u­la­tion be a “prod­uct” in order to be val­ued by oth­ers? Or even by you? Why do we all agree to adhere to the job=money=survival mod­el, when many find it so unfulfilling?

We don’t claim to have all the answers. But we do know that the only way to find alter­na­tives, or to find our own per­son­al under­stand­ings of real­i­ty, is to use our CREATIVE abil­i­ties to seek them.
Inge­nu­ity with­out crit­i­cal thought cre­ates clever “prod­ucts”, but is often unful­fill­ing if it has no real mean­ing or func­tion in our lives.

We believe that artists are inher­ent prob­lem solvers, and are look­ing to explain, com­mu­ni­cate, and seek truth in their works. Artists can keep us real; keep us human.

We appre­ci­ate all artists for this deeply per­son­al under­tak­ing and rec­og­nize it as a pub­lic ser­vice in many ways. Because we val­ue you and your work so much, we would like to encour­age and nur­ture your cre­ative endeav­ors in what­ev­er way we can! Think of us as your own per­son­al cheerleader.

Our on-line pres­ence is a place for cre­ative peo­ple and the like to find Inter­net based resources such as our Col­lab­o­ra­tive Email Plus+ email, our Social Spaces, our cre­ative com­mu­ni­ty, and what­ev­er else we decide to get our­selves into. Although this site is pri­mar­i­ly focused on Cre­ative, Do It Your­self, & Do It Togeth­er mem­ber­ship based in Philadel­phia Penn­syl­va­nia U.S., oth­ers may join with a sim­i­lar mind set. We approach cre­ativ­i­ty from a per­son­al and small busi­ness mind­set. We also extend our phys­i­cal pres­ence from time to time in order to give cre­ative’s a hand.

If you’ve always felt that there’s a lot more to just “mak­ing stuff”; that you can actu­al­ly plot your own course by hon­or­ing your cre­ative abil­i­ties… wel­come home.

Peace.
