53: Commentary : Artistic Collaboration



The Benefits of Collaboration to your art

In today’s episode, we will talk about artistic collaboration. I highly recommend collaboration with not only those who share your artistic practice but those from outside your discipline. Now this episode concerns the benefits of collaboration and we will talk about that, but I also will be commenting on some articles I discovered while making this episode that deals with collaboration and how the best artists utilize this to enhance their practice and extend their network.

Introduction

Hello friend, this is Timothy Kimo Brien head instigator of Create Art Podcast where we help you tame your inner critic and create more than you consume. I do this through commentary, conversations, projects, and interviews, and for 2021 I am doing webstreams for those who would like to watch versus just listening.

My Experience with Artistic Collaboration

Firstly, be discussing my academic theater experience with collaboration on both the good and opportunities for improvement. Likewise, I will also be mentioning my collaboration with Kyle Bondo of Gagglepod Studios and our podcast Podwrecked. This episode is being brought to you today from the Central Rappahannock Regional Library IdeaSpace Studio. Therefore, I have started a new collaboration with them to produce the “regular” episodes from their studio. Most importantly, if your library does not have a maker lab, get involved in helping them make a maker lab like the one we have here.

Points to Consider For Collaborations
