Session: Collaboration As An Art Form

What are the ingredients and conditions for a successful creative collaboration? What is a recipe for disaster? As Director of a creative residency program I spend my days nurturing talent, curating projects and creating opportunities for a small, multi-disciplinary team that span from murals to music-playing posters to short documentaries to experiential concerts to beer. I’ll share my experience in the art of cross pollination with the purpose of creating things that matter in culture.
