Visual Arts Facility (VAF) 554

Let's Collaborate is a conversation exploring methods and opportunities for activating participation in the UC San Diego visual arts community across all levels: BA, MFA, and PhD. What are the ways we can engage in each other's practices, from group shows, to events, to collectives, to projects and initiatives? What forms of collaboration can make us stronger, both individually and collectively? Join us for a group discussion about modes and methods of collaboration and possible endeavors at UC San Diego.
This event is organized by Triton Art.
