Collaborate and Create
Collaborate and Create is an extension project conceived by the directors of Kipaipai Workshops, a non-profit organization that focuses on the professional development of artists. Kipaipai Workshop’s mission is to encourage, inspire and build community. Collaborate and Create pairs two artists with varying artistic styles to problem solve and produce a collaborative work pushing boundaries outside the artists’ regular studio practice and experimenting with styles and materials. This process generates creative growth, builds bonds and partnerships that establish a vibrant creative community.
For #CountMeIn, the Collaborate and Create exhibition includes the works of 40 artists creating 20 new unique works. This is the second iteration of Collaborate and Create which debuted at The Loft at Liz’s in Los Angeles in January of 2020.
