The Association “Creative Ideas” was founded on 12 October 2011 and comprises more than 40 members – educators, artists, cultural and social workers, craftsmen, and others.

“Creative Ideas” is continuously implementing projects in collaboration with various EU countries in the fields of education, social inclusion, culture, regional development, and EU priorities.

Creative Ideas is a non-governmental organisation from Riga, Latvia, and provides informal youth and adult education.

It was established in 2011 and has grown to 44 members. Creative Ideas specializes in education, culture, society integration, rural development, and EU priorities. We organise trainings, workshops, exhibitions, and competitions. We prepare teaching materials and carry out research. We work in Riga, the capital city of Latvia, and Balvi town, which is located in Northeast of Latvia.
Since its foundation, Creative Ideas has involved at least 1000 unique persons in various activities, introduced Latvians to other countries and cultures; and helped to integrate more than 600 migrants in Latvia. Creative Ideas has implemented more than 30 projects, of which more than half has been implemented in international partnerships.

We are an inclusive organisation – Creative Ideas is an organisation founded and run by women. It offers flexible working opportunities, allowing you to combine exciting work with time for family, study, and other priorities. We create jobs for ourselves and others. Our employees include parents of young children, people 50+, people with disabilities and members of the Latvian diaspora.

Creative Ideas is a member of Civic Alliance–Latvia, Latvian Adult Education Association and Latvian Rural Forum. They have joined the Cooperation Memorandum between NGOs and the Cabinet of Ministers in Latvia and the Cooperation Memorandum between NGOs and the Riga Municipality.
