Last weekend I went with a friend to check out The Creators Project in DUMBO, Brooklyn. A few shots:
The Creators Project is a global network dedicated to the celebration of creativity, culture and technology. At a time in the history of the arts where digital technology has revolutionized distribution, democratized access, and re-imagined the scope and scale with which an artist can create a vision and reach an audience, The Creators Project is a new kind of arts and culture channel for a new kind of world.
It began in 2010 with two mandates: On one hand, to exist as a modern day media channel continually identifying and celebrating the work of visionary artists wherever they are. On the other hand, acting as a content creation atelier.
Now, in 2011, The Creators Project is expanding its commitment to supporting the arts by introducing The Studio, an arts initiative that will facilitate the production and dissemination of new work, as well as collaborations between artists from a variety of creative disciplines.
Distribution of the content takes place at www.thecreatorsproject.com, via a variety of other media including television, mobile, print, and an event series that began rolling out in diverse cultural centers around the world in 2010. The series embarked in New York City with a collection of curated artworks, films, panel discussions and live performances from artists all around the world. It then moved to London, Sao Paulo, and Seoul, culminating in an unforgettable 3-day exposition in Beijing.
