  • What is a collaboration? Host gets answers from the audience (25pp)
     ON EASEL
    A collaboration is all those things and more, in fact the definition of collaboration still being addended according to Miriam Webster as it is a DYNAMIC word!
    Collaboration is simply working together, alliances, associations,, in concert, fraternization, joint effort, participation, partnership, and teamwork.
     
    Not just “friends with benefits”  but real relationships that will increase audience base
    and further our companies artistic outreach.
    Joining forces with a partner to create a solution to a problem that neither partner could achieve on their own
    Leveraging resources by allying themselves with organizations to carry out a common mission

  • Here are a couple I just saw. Here’s one from the most recent issue of Vogue.
    Elizabeth Dee was the catalyst of last year’s X initiative in NY, an eye opening example of what can be done in a short time, with practically no money, to show a lot of cutting-edge art and create a community around it. She persuaded the owner of a four story industrial building that have been vacant since the DIA art foundation moved out in 2004 to let her have it for one year rentr free as an exhibtion space and put together a board and a program of more than 50 events-town hall meetings, performances, panel discussions, all free and open to the public. By the end of the year, more than 75,000 people had come.
  • I just had to put this in. When looking for collaborations in Chicago, this article came up. Collaborations: birds do it, bees do it, even beer breweries do it.
    Apparently there is a category of collaborative beer making-which is exactly like it says here: when two craft breweries decide to get together on a single beer.
    This one “Collaboration Not Litigation” Beer came about when two different brewers named their beers “Salvation” Rather than fighting it out in court, the decided to blend the two together for a special release. The first appeared in 2007 and there have been three releases since.
    The Open Source movement has hit the brewing circuit. Flying Dog Ales formed the Open Source Beer project to collaborate with several homebrewers and beer fans on a committee on a recipe. Truly a beer brewed by committee.
    And finally, Reunion-A Beer for Hope is an annual series of beers, a diffferent style each time, sold as a fundraiser for bone cancer research. The first year Pete’s Wicked got back together to brew the first release. Following years, beers were collaborations of several breweries, all using their distribution sources to raiser more money.
    Three great collaboratiave ideas to learn from: resulting in great public relations, increased sales and distribution with totally new products.
  • Perhaps Chicago needs to include an award like this?
  • (Get answers from the audience put on easel)
    Here I brought three
    but we need more-small, large, any size

  • Let’s go back to the examples you just gave and see if we can figure out what motivated these groups to collaborate.
    What problems were they trying to solve?
    Lack of core audience
    Losing core audience
    Lack of funds
    Lack of space
    Lack of specific skill set
    Lack of resources (other than money)
    Lack of exposure to target audience
    Lack of “credibility” with target audience
    Lack of technology
    Lack of “connected” board members
    Opportunity
    New and/or Expanded Space
    Diversity in Cast
    New Creative /Program/Curatorial Direction
    New Players/Staff
    New Skill Sets
    New Funding
    New Resources (other than money)
    New/Change of Brand

    • 4. What We Will Be Learning
    • 5. How We Will Be Learning
    • 6. What is a collaboration? • Working towards common goal or working towards goals that are compatible with each partner • Greater strength in numbers • Sharing skills • Synergy
    • 7. What is a collaboration? • Joining forces with a partner to create a solution to a problem that neither could achieve on their own • Leveraging resources by allying themselves with organizations to carry out a common mission
    • 8. What is a strategic collaboration? Distinct from short term, project- oriented sponsorships, strategic collaborations are intensive, durable commitments created for mutual gain; they require significant investment by all parties of time and energy.
    • 9. In bad times, art sometimes get more interesting…And now, in synch with our current economic troubles, many young artists are expanding art’s range with collaborative ventures that defy traditional categories… “Would culture continue to be supported if there were no resources? The logical answer was to keep on working on projects together…How could we do that collectively? Vogue October, 2010
    • 10. Craft Beer 101: Collaboration Beer A Collaboration arises when brewmasters from two (or more!) craft breweries decide to get together on a single beer The first such beer to make a big splash on store shelves in Chicago was “Collaboration, Not Litigation” Ale. Two craft brewers both had a Belgian Ale called "Salvation." Rather than fight it out in court , they met and, over a few beers, decided they should blend the two brews together for a special release. Talk things out over a beer? It's a time-honored tradition. When the guys who make beer sit down to talk things over, great beer can result.
    • 11. The special collaboration between traditional and the creative industries was the focus of a new international prize awarded as part of the project ‘Creative City Challenge’ this October. Companies (from the North Sea Region countries) applied for the Best Collaboration Award from the fields of Advertising, Architecture, Arts and Antique Markets, Crafts, Design, Communication Design, Fashion Design, Film, Video, Photography, Software, Computer Games and Electronic Publishing, Music and the Visual and Performing Arts, Publishing, Television and Music.”
