The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) is now accepting applications for a series of 24-hour gallery take-overs intended to provoke conversation, expose process, and invite public participation. Back to the Drawing Board will take place at Benchspace, CCCD’s gallery and workshop, throughout the summer of 2015. These one-day take-overs aim to make visible the invisible creative process and provide a venue for experimentation, collaboration, failure, and innovation.
The format of these take-overs is decided by the collaborator, and may include a performance, installation, film, and/or exhibition. Each collaborator will receive $500 for materials and supplies, marketing by CCCD, and the chance to present a new idea or body of work. All artists, makers, designers, curators, performers, educators, and researchers with a process oriented, engaging project or work-in-progress are welcome to apply.
