    I think creators always need to find inspiration from outside of their core domain. I'm a digital designer by trade and love what I do but I get a lot of inspiration from doing other things too. For me, prowling London and shooting all the fabulous street around really inspires me.

    Yes! Great tip Raafaye, I signed up for the Museum Association card last week. Such good value, and something that lots of people don't know about – I only discovered it recently.

    Another creative resource in London is cheap theatre tickets for any one under the age of 25, it’s schemes run by the likes of national theatre to give affordable theatre tickets for around £10 

    National theatre - entry pass - under 25 
    Barbican - young barbican  - under 25
    Royal opera house - student scheme
    Mouse trap theatre projects - under 30 
    (better offers for younger you are)

    One amazing cheap creative resource I found out about is the museum association card which costs around £55 a year to get access to all the paid exhibitions from the Tate’s, V&A, Hayward gallery, British museum,  Barbican, portrait gallery, house of illustration. ( it also works nation wide not just london museums and galleries)  

    It’s called entry pass (it isn’t the prettiest card but it’s amazing)
