& CO:LAB CABARET

Hello My Art Is

What?

An experimental event series in the Bay Area. An opportunity for artists of multiple genres to come together in a creatively fertile, loosely structured environment designed to foster Collaboration.

An Experiment in Synergy. A playground for artistic exploration and a canvas for exploring what’s possible when we break out of spectator roles and normal social/party scripts and try something new!

What does the format look like though?

Generally after people arrive (fill out the above art tag sticker), mingle, watch the Body Art and participate in the Craftivity of the evening and sip on something– we have one or more Curated Featured Experiments… which is a Live Performance featuring 3-5 different kinds of Artists that is some percentage planned and always at least a bit improvised.

There will sometimes be a quick playful connective exercise or networking game… and then more open ended exploration aided by a DJ or live musicians.

Next one…

Arts Co:Lab at festivals & events

We also setup Arts Co:Lab stations at larger events like this zone at Lightning In A Bottle Music Festival this year.

We had Award Making & Playing Card Making, and the Co:Creation Rotation where multiple people put their touch onto pieces of art…
