Mission Statement



How is it possible to retain our humanity in the worst of all circumstances? When everything is taken, what remains that allows us to survive not only, or not even, in body, but in spirit?

Creativity in Captivity presents events, exhibitions, conversations, podcasts and films exploring the power of creation to activate what is most meaningful.

In many times and in many places, the heroism of retaining the human soul has been put to the test. Our purpose is to explore the interior world of creativity as it holds its own and so encourage and guide this crucial capacity.

The Creativity in Captivity project is a 501c3 not-for-profit, that produces performances and uses the funds

* to secure the Lotoro Archive and

* produce further performances, media and events of art that has been created under captive circumstances.
