In Fall 2014, The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) accepted applications from artists, makers, designers, curators, performers, educators, and researchers 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 CCCD’s Benchspace Gallery & 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.
