FriendsGiving: Artist Showcase + Fundraiser

  • BKLYN Commons - FLATBUSH 495 Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11225 United States (map)

Join us in supporting our community of local artists + creative entrepreneurs

FRIENDSGIVING is our annual kick-off to the holiday season; an end-of-year showcase and fundraiser for friends of the Collective and community. FriendsGiving allows us to support and highlight the creatives we’ve met throughout the community with an evening of live performance and visual art exhibitions, artwork and merchandise for sale, raffles, food and refreshments and top-notch audio selections + family gathering feels. 

We look to feature visual and performance artists, photographers and creative vendors from the community, and encourage all to come spend time taking in the exhibitions and speaking to the creatives before the performances begin. With more than 30 creatives on display, you'll want to get to know them plus the array of colorful guests! Come mingle with the artists, engage in interactive presentations and view the galleries during the Artist Reception + Gallery Hour at 7:00pm - artwork and artist merch, along with local community vendings and food will be up for sale and raffled throughout the evening. 

Once the night kicks off, you're in for an eclectic mix of musical performances, spoken words, dance, moving miage and virtual displays + more!  Performances and Screenings start at 8:30 SHARP!
