At today's meeting, the collective decided on a name for itself: Dōdekapus.
A dōdekapus is a creature made of twelve tentacles, each holding a tool that represents twelve different mediums of art, that when combined create a new organic creative creature.
We also decided that the name of our first show will be
Collective Conscious, and will be held on April 9th at the studio space at 431 Fair St, Atlanta, GA 30313.
What we're about...
Our vision is to establish a prominent and accessible local arts culture that sustains artists and fosters a strong connection with the community. Dōdekapus plans to build new bridges to the community to allow local artists to become more involved with their neighborhoods. Dōdekapus believes local involvement in the arts is an important aspect of developing a healthy local arts culture that is both stimulating and beneficial to the community. Collaboration between artists of different disciplines creates something which is greater than the sum of its parts. Through this creative process, Dōdekapus can produce and develop multi-media projects which both help artists develop individually as well as produce work that can be enjoyed locally.
