Being co-creative is about being together with purpose to make something new that you couldn't make on your own. Co-creating demands cooperation, collaboration and co-production. It's difficult. It can be rewarding. It's ideological, political and democratic. It asks for a different way of being in the world; a being together in the world, not being separate or being on your own.
