Free! No need to register, just show up! People of all genders welcome!
Presented in partnership with CARFAC Manitoba and MAWA.
Diana Thorneycroft will address the benefits and potential pitfalls of working with others. She will discuss different structures and configurations, including collectives, one-time collaborations, partnerships, groups and hiring others to work on your projects. She will also explore safeguards, including the importance of communication and clarity, written agreements and timelines. Using her own experience and those of others, she will provide examples of collaborations that have made significant contributions to the Canadian art scene.
Throughout her career, Diana Thorneycroft has collaborated on several projects outside of the visual arts discipline, most notably with Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers. She is a member of two visual artist collectives and has hired various artists to assist her in the completion of complex projects. She has also produced two- and three-person exhibitions, with her studio mates and life partner, that have required negotiation of space and resources.
