What makes a collaboration or relationship successful to you? What areas of your practice, artistic or otherwise, need the kind of TLC that can only be provided by working with a brand new person? What is intrinsically valuable about making creative work in tight proximity to others?

In this Collaboration Workshop we’ll use (artistic) BLIND DATING as a method of examining our notions of process and relating to others. In the workshop sessions we'll analyze our tendencies and attempt to frame them in context to uncover the buried biases we didn’t even know we had about working with each “other.”

All participants will be paired and given the opportunity to present their work at a performance on Wednesday, December 5 at 7 pm.

This workshop is great for artists working any medium or people pursuing creative work who want the opportunity to collaborate on a new piece in a low stakes, high turn-around process. People of all ages, backgrounds, and disciplines are highly encouraged to participate.

Cost: $5 Community Class Drop-in Rate, Performance is free!

This workshop is made possible by 954 DMC's Community Class Program
