Creativity Portal Celebrates 20 Years Online!

Two decades of inspiring creativity, connection, exploration, and expression.


Dear Creative Friends,

So glad you found your way here today! I have some great news to share with you.

In 2000 I founded Creativity Portal as an online repository and dynamic community for creatives of all kinds to both enjoy and participate in. This growing resource has connected individuals with essential creative content, tools, and resources and access to thought leaders and coaches who make a true difference in our world.

As we are into our 21st year online, our vision is to continue to hold invaluable online space to foster creativity, uplift, inspire, and inform. Thriving independent Web sites like ours are fueled by passion and integrity and we need to continue to find mutually beneficial ways for sustainability. This is why we're thrilled to offer eScribir, an all-access model for you to directly connect with our creative content.

Yes, for the small price of a cup of coffee, you can enjoy browsing through two decades of our online library and receive special updates in your inbox when we publish new content.

Please support the things you enjoy online, especially those that fuel your creative spirit and feed your soul. If Creativity Portal is a place like that for you, we're honored.

—Chris Dunmire, Creativity Portal
