of Thousands During Uncertain Times
Southern Californian Thought Leaders and Conscious Artists have recently unified with one mission: to create an online community for the conscious collective. At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, social media influencer, and spoken word artist, Adam Roa sat with the question of how to support a global community predominately stuck at home during this time. Understanding that along with an almost immediate change in cultural norms. Things like a lack of physical touch and human connection, sedentary lifestyle, and increased consumption of processed foods are all major catalysts for depression and emotional strain. Roa decided to do something about it.
An acronym standing for the Collective Renaissance of Education, Art, Transformation, and Entertainment—was born. From a need to come together as a community and provide a safe space for people to stay in touch virtually during this time of social distancing. The CREATE Community’s free weekly events have attracted the attention of people from all around the world. These places include the U.K., Germany, Australia, and Indonesia, quickly gaining 2,000+ members within two weeks of inception and answering a public need for social connection and a sense of normalcy.
Within the CREATE virtual online community
You will find members encouraging positivity, sharing expert knowledge, and engaging in expansive conversations with people all around the globe. Roa states, “I thought it would be important to have a hub, a place where people could go to get all of that synthesized into one place and also to feel like they were a part of a community. Because a community is more than just a group of people, a community is medicine. A community is so healing because it allows people to feel seen, heard, and loved. They are welcomed for who they are, and they get a chance to express themselves.”
The community’s extensive offering of online classes is filled with influencers and thought leaders with programming. We are covering a wide variety of interests, from yoga, cooking classes to open mic nights. Some of the events include “Vocal Activations” with former NBC’s “The Voice” finalist Monique Benabou, Yoga class with Andrew Sealy. And high-profile interviews with thought leaders such as Preston Smiles, IN-Q, Danette May, and Miki Agrawal. As well as virtual concerts with headliners like Elijah Ray.
