The Create Project is a web-based community focused on communication and sharing between Free and Open Source Creative applications.[1] Initially the project was created by as a space for collaboration between free software creative projects, since then the project has become a full sub-project. Create now aims to develop and consolidate shared resources for creative applications.[2] Several community-developed specifications have begun to be developed under the project such as OpenRaster and the Swatches colour file format.[3]

Some of the many groups that come together under this project include Blender, GIMP, Inkscape, Scribus, Audacity, Open Clip Art Library, Open Font Library and the Aiki Framework which produce creative content, one of the major ways these groups come together is through the Libre Graphics Meeting which is hosted by the Create Project.[4]
