We are a colony of creators building new ways, with new tools, to deliver our creative output. Built on talent and excellence, Baby Forest is by invitation and application only.  We aim to build a multi-disciplinary colony of talented creators.  A place we are all proud to be a part of.

Our objective is to support and encourage creativity and empower the creator.  Our aim is to create a model, a two way conduit, where the member, audience, consumer, user, has direct access to creators and their worlds - their work, their inspirations, their thinking, their personality, every aspect of a creative life that a creator wants to and feels comfortable enough to share, where the creator is self empowering, self- sufficient, and receives the majority of the income generated from their creative output.
