What is a collaborative installation? 

This can be in any art form; poetry, music, painting, photography, digital media, etc. It can be a collaborative painting, a collective poem, a wall of portraits, a stack of balloons, the possibilities are endless. Please think about how art and culture make community as well as considering the following:


  • It must be collaborative! Meaning it has to be geared to utilize people at the event to help, build, or be a part of the installation/process.


  • You can apply as an individual or a team of no more than four (4) folx.


  • Must be completed within the 2 hour event time frame


  • Must be thoughtful and engaging  AND must look cool!

For the proposal you will need to submit:


  • A title for the project/installation

  • *Project Description (no more than 3-4 paragraphs, can be shorter if you're good) explaining the project and how you will include people and install in our space. Each project will be given an approx 8ft x 8ft wall/floor space to utilize how they see fit. 

  • A sketch/design of the proposed project (doesn’t need to be super detailed or fancy, just give us an idea of what you are envisioning)

  • A list of materials needed alongside an estimated cost. ($200 is what we are able to support)
