a gathering of individuals dedicated to a particular cause or interest
Striving to impart and reinforce positive mindsets and communities, the SLAPcollective is a melding of groups, individuals, and initiatives who stand for self love, affirmation, and preservation by way of creative practices. Building community through artistry and dialogue, as an art collective, we welcome all degrees of creatives and individuals looking to explore and express themselves through creative arts. While encouraging individual participation and cross collaboration, we work to provide and educate about available resources, opportunities and other general informations within the spaces we hold.
From workshops and group discussions to shared work spaces and artistic productions – spanning various mediums and methods – the Collective hosts and supports creative gatherings that strengthen one’s sense of self and belonging by connecting individuals with resources and experiences that leave them feeling connected, fluid and part of a larger network. With the intent to nurture a community of beings and spaces for the purpose of expressive individual and collaborative growth, we showcase various developing artists, voices, mediums and practices.
Our collective mission is to connect and mix creatives with one another and audiences to display and further develop their artistic grasps; we aim to grow and cultivate a succinct community of artists, resources and opportunities that help elevate artists of all degrees. Ultimately, creatives are welcomed to a platform to explore and collaborate with others by hosting and/or participating in workshops, open discussions and showcases. On the other hand, the everyday individual, as an attendee and active participant, is encouraged to take part in and explore their own means of creative expression.
