In general, we use the standard GitLab engineering workflow. To get in touch with the Create team, it's best to create an issue in the relevant project (typically GitLab CE) and add the ~Create label, along with any other appropriate labels. Then, feel free to ping the relevant Product Manager and/or Engineering Manager as listed above.
For more urgent items, feel free to use #g_create on Slack.
The Create team conducts monthly retrospectives in GitLab issues. These include the backend team, plus any people from frontend, UX, and PM who have worked with that team during the release being retrospected.
