THE CREATORS COLLECTIVE’s Winter 2017 Call for Artists

THE CREATORS COLLECTIVE seeks artists to participate in one or more of our Winter 2017 events. Information about each event is listed below. Deadlines differ for each event and range from January 12th – 31st. Artists are encouraged to apply for multiple events. Learn more about the collective and our past programming here:

Fall 2016 Events:
1/28 – TAG
2/9 – Ready Freddy’s?! Winter Edition
3/18 – Evening of Performance Inspired by Liinu Grönlund


Performance date: Saturday, January 28th
Venue: Brooklyn Works in South Slope, Brooklyn

TAG is back! TAG is exactly what it sounds like – a game of tag, but between artists! TAG will feature artists of different disciplines who will develop new work live at the event by creating something and then tagging an artist of a different discipline to continue where they left off. There will be multiple cycles throughout the event, culminating with a collection of multidisciplinary art installations throughout the space. When artists aren’t working, they are encouraged to continue to hang out in the event space, prepared to be tagged in and start working. 

Both artists and audience members will be encouraged to come to the event with materials to contribute to the creative process – a paint brush, a piece of fabric, their favorite song, etc. 

Learn more about TAG here, which we first organized in June 2016.

We would like to extend this year’s TAG as an opportunity for artists to feel comfortable expressing and exploring their feelings on the current state of our country and world. Taking place one week after the inauguration, we are aware that artists and audiences alike will be tackling many heightened thoughts and emotions. TAG will be a safe and welcoming space to explore those feelings in an open and collaborative workspace.

To participate, send an email to with your name, artistic discipline, and two work samples of your work (performers: you should be in the videos). If you are an artist we’ve worked with before, simply send an email with your interest in participating. We encourage each interested artist to recruit an artist of another discipline to come along to create as well. 

Deadline to Apply: Thursday, January 12th

An Evening of Performance Inspired by Liinu Grönlund

Performance date: Saturday, March 18th
Venue: Open Source Gallery in South Slope, Brooklyn

Liinu Grönlund (born 1984) is a visual artist based in Helsinki, Finland who works with video and film. Her interest is in remoteness and extremes, collaborating with scientists, wandering in disappearing worlds. At Open Source Gallery this February and March, Liinu Grönlund will exhibit “Rat,” a collection of thoughts about the civilization and the relationship between humans and the natural world.

THE CREATORS COLLECTIVE is interested in presenting both new and previously developed works that fit the themes in this exhibition.

You can learn more about the exhibit here.
Take a look at one of our past collaborative events with Open Source Gallery here.

To submit work, please send an email to with your name, artistic discipline, two work samples (specifying if either is the work you wish to perform) and how the work you are proposing relates to the themes in the exhibition. 

Deadline to Apply: Tuesday, January 31st
