If you spend any amount of time online, chances are you’ve heard of TikTok. For many of us a new platform can be overwhelming at first, especially when faced with a huge range of content as soon as you open the app. It can be hard to know where to start and you can be left feeling that you haven’t managed to find ‘your people’.
Rest assured, it’s not all teenagers doing impossible intricate dance routines and inside jokes you’re not in on. TikTok can be an inspirational space to discover empowering creatives – you just need to know where to look.
There are a whole host of welcoming communities on TikTok who care deeply about the same things we do, from mindfulness and yoga to sustainability and recycling. Meet a handful of our favourites:
