Creativity Squads

Awakening creativity and other future worklife skills inside individuals, universities, communities and organisations. From learners to learners.

“It made me review everything about me”


Creativity Squads is a non-profit community that conducts creative actions (e.g. gatherings and workshops) to meet persons from different backgrounds and boost creativity and other future work-life skills. We are developing Creative Self-Leadership concept.


All the people who are interested in creativity and other "softer" skills, and are willing to spread them around. We already have people from engineers and entrepreneurs to “figuring out what to do in life” persons. Thus, do not think you are lacking a certain skill.


Togther we are one big community, but a local creativity squad can exists anywhere in the world, and it can operate in local language.

Existing squads (in Finland): Jyväskylä, Tampere, Helsinki and Vaasa. Coming: Turku, Lappeenranta, Thailand, India..

Our vision is to create the largest network in the world that can help to flourish creative actions, inspire people and focus on self-development

Creative Self-Leadership

Creative Self-Leadership is the main concept we are developing. It's about discovering how you think about yourself and creativity around you. It's meant for everyone who believes that the individual empowerment is important in a creative way.

“Summer of 2016 was a whole different season for me. Sitting behind the desk and chairs in school make you wonder what if there were a new style of education with much more enjoyable activities. Talking with others about your failures and how to embrace them sounds scary to me, as a shy introverted guy, however when you feel the atmosphere and attitude of others it became easy and relaxing. I was stunned by the subjects we went through in summer school; represent your ideas by handcrafting, dance and move when your eyes are closed was exciting for me with such a talented group of instructors. Now, back in normal school I missed being with lovely friends of mine. Hope all the classes were like this!”
