New stretch target

Now Find Your Light is a registered Community Interest Company, we are aiming to hold a minimum of 2-3 retreats per year, and possible day retreats on top of that. This crowdfunder will be used if and when needed, to keep attendance fees low and to keep the retreats accessible to those who need them most. 


WHO WE ARE

Started by twin sisters Natalie and Kyla Stroud, 'Find Your Light' is a not-for-profit arts & wellbeing retreat for creative people, giving them a chance to reconnect with themselves, their creativity and others. Particularly those who have been negatively impacted by Covid-19.

WHAT'S THE PLAN?

We will be providing all of the ingredients to get creative juices flowing again without any expectation, pressure or judgement. With the creative industries taking a huge hit during Covid-19, we want to focus back in on the beating heart of the arts; the passion, the expression and the connection. Through our retreats artistic, we hope to inspire those who need inspiring, support those who need supporting and challenge those who want to be challenged. Days are filled with creative workshops, wellbeing sessions and communal meals to allow people a chance to reconnect with others, themselves and their creativity.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Part of our reasoning for creating this retreat is the unfair reality that experiences like this are commonly only accessible to the wealthy, when it's those struggling who potentially need it most. With your help, we hope to raise enough money to cover the cost of food and wellness classes for the retreats, allowing us to reduce the fee for all our attendees.
