The Creative Advocate Group is a subgroup of the advocate program that is composed of advocates who love all forms of artistic expression- art, music, writing, acting, you name it! We use our creative skills and hobbies to enhance the OCD community. A few examples are creative live events, helping with the art gallery at the conferences, making infographics, etc.
