CREATIVITY LIVES HERE
REHEARSAL & RECORDING SPACE
Creative thinking is the single most important tool of human beings. To solve a problem one must think creatively. Without this capacity, humans would never have developed farming, housing, metal making, weapons, city states, chariots, cars, computers, space travel or the Internet. The Arts (meaning anything that must be made by humans) are always about solving a problem and the Artist (meaning any skilled person that applies his abilities to create something new) is the problem solver. If you don’t fit into the Artist category you’re just occupying space without paying your rent. Creativity is the rent you pay for the privilege to occupy your space on the planet.

Muse Creative Workspace is where the Artist makes things happen for the purpose of expressing positive individual ideas to the larger audience. This then produces other ideas among them of which they then express to others and the process continues ad infinitum. Muse Creative Workspace borrows its name from the Muses of Greek mythology. Although folkloric in nature many historical versions of the Muses spread throughout antiquity, the English translation of the word means “inspired”. Therefore, it can mean inspired by “other” than oneself such as the environment, the universe, the multi-verse of simply a verse from another. Spiritually it can mean inspired by God. Regardless of the definition, Muse Creative Workspace simply means inspired creative workspace. The name implies that participating Artist and visitors can and should expect to be inspired to create great works which are useful for the development of inspiration in others that we encounter and in all that participate here at Muse Creative Workspace.
