collaborate:create is a program that brings artists together across disciplines to create new works in 21 days that center on one socially relevant theme. The process culminates in a one night only public exhibition. c:c is a project of Forward Flux Productions.
collaborate:create exhibitions feature a programmed evening of new works installed throughout the entire venue, and a salon-meets-museum pARTy atmosphere where audiences can engage with art and artists for a unique "what is art" experience.
collaborate:create started in NYC in 2013, and has had 6 cycles completed since inception. It had 4 cycles in residence at Theaterlab in Manhattan, and one cycle at the Center for Performance Research in Brooklyn. In 2015, the program expanded to Seattle, performing at Fremont Abbey.

Forward Flux Productions with Parley Productions presents #nofilter, an exhibition of new works investigating the role of filters in our digital lives. This one-night-only event marks the completion of an artists' residency program called collaborate:create. An amazing group of artists have worked across disciplines to create new works in 21 days that explore our heavily filtered world.
The exhibition has a pARTy atmosphere with a full evening of new works including dance, film, visual art, 10min plays, performative and multimedia installations, music, and more, all exploring the role that filters have in our lives, from social media to the news media and more. There will be opportunities to meet the artists, and engage in conversation with others at the show.
Purchase admission in advance for ease of entry. Tickets start at just $5.
