The Habitat Association aims to encourage creative people

We are about mentoring the creative individual and encouraging them to put together quality products for publishing.

Our main aim is to publish and mentor in the arts and environment, and encourage adaptive thinking.

We provide a forum for people to share and publish their ideas and life’s experiences.

The Habitat Association is not an advocacy group, but provides forums for individuals and collaborative groups to mentor or be mentored by others and discuss issues. These discussions may be in the form of articles, papers, books, painting, poems or other forms of communication related to our environment, where we live, how we live, and individual’s life experiences.

Projects similar to the above are the activity of individuals but the following are the activities of the Association.

Publishing

The association encourages the publishing of individual or collaborative projects.

One of the avenues the Habitat Association uses to publish projects is the Habitat Association’s websites.

Projects that have been published on the website include:

  • book samples,
  • short stories,
  • articles, poems,
  • paintings,
  • photographic themes related to place
  • academic papers.

The association is not limited to the creative projects currently published on the website.

The Habitat Association is continually exploring new ways to publish finished works by individuals and collaborative groups.

All work published under the auspices of the Habitat Association must meet the publishing standards of the Association.

Mentoring

Mentoring requires a relationship between people. It requires a transfer of knowledge and experience. Both our directors and participants in the activities of the Habitat Association have considerable life experiences. As the organization grows this experience will grow and ad value to our mentoring capability.

The association encourages people to come together to talk and write about their experiences. It is part of the Habitat Association’s culture to encourage participants to tell their stories by putting their thoughts and ideas in the written form. For the more visually inclined we encourage participants to put their thoughts, ideas and concepts into pictures, paintings, sculptures, crafts or into a photographic form.

The Arts

So what do we mean by ‘the Arts’?

The Association understands “the arts” to mean, any creative process that produces a product that can be enjoyed by humanity.

The association does not limit the artistic expression except through its publishing standards.

Environment

So what do we mean by the environment?

The association takes a wider view of the environment than the modern understanding of the word environment. We recognize that our environment is the places where we live .

Adaptive thinking

The association’s overarching aim is to encourage adaptive thinking. The object is to find new and creative ways to approach issues, problems and challenges.
