Who We Are
“The Creatives,” are an artist collective of Jacksonville, FL, that emerged from a Creative Capital training, in 2016, which was supported through the Community Foundation of Northeast Florida and the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville. Together, we are hosting a national “Call to Artists.” This project is being spearheaded by Caitlin Flynn, Jane Griffo, Jenny K. Hager, Mal Jones, Deborah Reid, D. Lance Vickery, and Ithiell Yisrael. (“The Creatives”). Additional team members from UNF have joined the team: Amy Bennion, Jessica Borusky, Vanessa Cruz, Sheila Goloborotko, and Kally Malcolm Bjorklund.

The Idea
“The Creatives” are launching an ALL DIGITAL collaborative projection and sound event. The idea is to create thought-provoking work which provides a critical response to current events, lifting it up as an opportunity for civic discourse and engagement – using the arts to bring people together to share ideas and create dialogue through art.

The Project
Imagine a “Drive-In Theater” Art Exhibition. The Project, titled “ArtWork(ers) United,” will be a one day event with projected poetry, images, video and amplified sound (all pre-recorded and also livestreaming). The outdoor location is at the University of North Florida, Parking Lot 18. We hope to include a diverse group of artists, with a diverse range of media. The ideas behind the work are a response to our world today and are intended to create an essential dialog. In addition to the “movie style” art event we are also using this as an opportunity to remind people to vote as well as help people register to vote.

Event (8 pm -12 am) will be held at the University of North Florida, Parking Lot 14. The event will also be live streamed.
