About collaborate:create

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.


History

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.

#nofilter - Exhibition & pARTy - April 20

Forward Flux Productions with Parley Productions presents #nofilter, an exhibition of new works investigating the role of filters in our digital lives.
