The Creators Project
Art and design changed within the massive evolution of digital media. All the creative fields like music, visual arts, architecture, street art or even fashion design changed. Of course you can mention that these creative fields are constantly going through a shift but the developments got faster and faster. And by the development of the web, everybody can and does participate. And there are a lot of platforms where companies try to support these new creators.
But there are still professionals, people that are out of the league. Inspiring people like Spike Jonze, Stefan Sagmeister, or Vera Wang. Intel and Vice Magazine came up with the idea to support these high class creatives. The Creators Project is a network, which offers a way to get an insight into the creators lifes and works and on the other hand they are also supporting their projects and productions.
“The Creators Project has two mandates: on one hand it’s a modern day media channel that we will continually identify and celebrate the work of visionary artists wherever they are. On the other hand it is also a content creation studio, an arts foundation of sorts that will facilitate the production and dissemination of new work with these artists and their collaborators.” via thecreatorsproject.com
The Creators Project Conquers London
In London the Creators Project will introduce itself to the public (in real life) next week, July 17, and some of the creators will present their work, e.g. Spike Jonze and Kele Okereke. Thanks to Marcel, I will be part of the public in London, I was invited to get inspired by some top creatives. (Some of you might be interested in why Marcel managed to get me going? Let’s say it was a payback)
“Indeed, The Creators Project is coming to London and bringing with it a celebratory assemblage of musicians, artists, designers, panelists, filmmakers, food, and […]
Firstly the day time exhibition, running from 12PM to 6PM it will include interactive installations from Radical Friend, United Visual Artists, Karl Sadler, Nick Zinner, Takeshi Murata, Spike Jonze, DSP, Mark Essen, Li Hui and Felix Thorn. […]
This will be followed by the evening event running from 6PM to 3AM. […] The evening will start with film screenings, panel discussions and workshops, we recommend you turn up early for these as we anticipate them being very popular. These will be followed by live performances from Mark Ronson & The Business Intl, Kele Okereke, Flats, Yuck, and special guests, along with DJ sets by Filthy Dukes, Trevor Jackson, Saam Farahmand, Mumdance and DJ Crispin.”
I am really looking forward to the trip and to see all these creatives presenting their works.
