About Us

Creative Saint Helena is a non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting, facilitating and mentoring the creative, visual, musical and dramatic arts on the South Atlantic island of St Helena.

We strive to create opportunities for communities to access, engage and participate in the Arts with imagination and confidence - or just to enjoy the creative work of others.

IN+VENTIVE

We are also the umbrella organisation for IN+VENTIVE, a creative arts youth service providing access to art, craft, music, drama, dance, photography, garment design / making, cookery, media experience and film making for young people between 10 and 18. See the In+Ventive Facebook™ page more further details.

‘Speaking Saint’ - the books

In 2015 a book was published by Creative Saint Helena (with the support of the Saint Helena Community Development Organisation) entitled ‘Speaking Saint’.

Speaking Saint is a loose and mixed collection of writing, from authors ranging in age and experience. It is Saint Helenian: the everyday, the unusual, local and international, real and imaginary.
[...]
Much of Speaking Saint is written in what we call ‘Saint English’. It is the dialect of the island. To an untrained ear this can be considered ‘bad’ English. It is not. ‘Splitting the dick’ is what Saints say when they are using ‘proper’ English, often reserved for when non-Saints are in company. It is ‘Saint English’ that is the language of Saint Helena. It breathes life, value and authenticity into the cultural landscape.

A second book, ‘Speaking Saint - Next One’ was published at the end of 2015. In this second book of rich and diverse stories from ‘The Rock’, the collection seeks to capture local experience, knowledge and tradition with writing by Saints and by those from overseas who live and work here.

More are planned for the future…

‘Speaking Saint’ is available from, inter alia, the moonbeamsforall.com: Moonbeams Shop • opens in a new window or tab [Saint Helena Island Info:Creative Saint Helena]Moonbeams Shop, and for Kindle™ via Amazon.co.uk.
