CALL FOR COLLABORATORS
The CO-OS community – www.co-os.org – has commissioned artists from Austria, Brazil, Greece/Spain and UK to develop new work. These artists have just posted their ideas on the CO-OS online platform www.co-os.org. Would you like to collaborate with them in developing their ideas?
Until the 20 May you can ‘bid’ some of your ‘time’ to work with them and get ‘time credit’ to get others to work with you.
Just register on the website and get started. You can also pitch your own ideas and see what the community thinks. If they like it, you can find people with whom you can collaborate and develop your ideas.
CO-OS – www.co-os.org – is a growing online community of creators and do-ers, all coming together to collaborate and exchange creative ideas, skills and resources in a cashless system based on the concept of timebanking. Here ideas can be shared, evaluated and developed collaboratively through trading units of time in exchange for skills and resources.
The project is part of ‘Creative Collaboration’, www.britishcouncil.org/creativecollaboration, a British Council arts initiative that builds networks for dialogue and debate across the arts communities of South East Europe and the UK. The programme aims to enrich the cultural life of Europe and its surrounding countries, as well as fostering understanding, skills development, trust and respect across borders.
