While artists often work independently, creativity doesn't happen in a vacuum. Visual art, music, dance, theatre, film, and literature shine their brightest when informed and inspired by each other. This only happens when we put down our differences and open our hearts and minds to each other.
We can bring forth this light together. Collaboration isn't always easy, but it's worthwhile.
A 3-day intensive workshop designed to facilitate fluid and goal-oriented creativity between artists. This 3-day weekend teaches 6-9 artists from a wide array of disciplines to work together to create a single new work of art. In this process the artists (or 'builders' as they are known in the Collabyrinth) use a shared language and experience of art to break down the barriers which divide artists, and rewire their collaborative spirit.
Behind every great building is a design. For the Collabyrinth, that comes in the form of teaching. Builders will learn from cutting edge artists from throughout their community and beyond about the form, technique, and content. By learning to break down art into its most basic components, artists will learn to think beyond the rules of their own medium into a more universal application of theory.
The Collabyrinth strives to teach artists to trust the universe beyond their own intentions. It challenges artists with fun and creative puzzles which test their problem-solving skills and push them to think beyond their comfort zone.
At the heart of our blueprints are an agenda of fun, experimentation, and joy.
Over the course of 72 hours Artists from multiple disciplines will work together in cloister to create a new work of art from a decided medium.
Facilitators will act as instigators of creativity, but all artistic decision will be made by the group using a combination of prompts and the Collabyrinth Methodology.
