Creative Cafe is a social network where members show off their art, photography, crafts, music, videos and write blogs.

SITE POLICY JUNE 2009
New Members must now be approved by admin in order to prevent further spammer problems.
SITE POLICY February 2009
In the last week we have had a problem with SPAMMERS signing up as members not filling in their profiles and then writing spam blog posts advertising dubious products which have nothing to do with being creative.
So our Creative Cafe policy is now to just ban such members as soon as they are spotted without any explanation.
All the old Cafe News are now filed in the Cafe News Old Editions discussion.
Create Construct Concoct Chat. Develop and Share your talents on Creative Cafe. We support disabled people. Membership is free.
How does creativity happen in your head? Is it like a lightbulb going on and off? Or a flash of inspiration? However it happens for you welcome to the Creative Cafe where you can let your imagination run wild. In the Creative Cafe you can design your page YOUR WAY. Show off your creativity. Display your art, designs, photographs , music, poetry and writing.
This 2nd week in November is our 5th Birthday and final year for Creative Cafe on Ning.
We will be closing this site due to the high cost of fees and the fall in advert revenue and are reopening on Facebook HERE
This site is now closed to new members. Please join us on Facebook
A selection of featured members pictures are in this slideshow below. You may need to click the forward button at the bottom of the slideshow to start the sequence.
You can help Creative Cafe with our running costs and in supporting disabled people. We are being badly hit by attacks in the UK Mainstream Media and cuts in benefits and vital services.
You can Donate by PAYPAL HERE
or write to email@example.com for details on becoming a sponsor with an advert on this site or for any other information.
We do not feel the cuts are needed here in the UK when the money could be gained from other sources. For example £120 billion is said to be lost in tax evasion and tax fraud. Why cut welfare by £7 billion and hurt the disabled and vulnerable when Vodaphone alone owe £6 billion in unpaid taxes.
If you want to join in the Rich Tax Evader protests follow #ukuncut on Twitter and go to http://ukuncut.wordpress.com/ and Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/reqs.php#!/ukuncut
Disabled People's groups are also organising to fight the UK cuts. A good one to follow is Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) at http://www.dpac.uk.net/ and also Black Triangle - Anti-Defamation Campaign In Defence of Disabled Claimants on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/blacktriangle11
We are also now organising a local Brighton UK Branch of Disabled People Against Cuts and have a Facebook group you can join if you are a disabled person or ally in the area HERE

I am a fifty-eight year old lady. I am a mother of five and I have eight grandchildren. Through my lifetime I have tried my hand at book publishing and screenplay writing, but I find myself enjoying my new hobby now that the kids are grown of making videos to show work that I have done and extend my obsession with photography in video form.
I first started with a youtube channel under Dorisanne13. On top of doing short commercial videos about my screenplays I have…
