In 2018, Super Space is serving as a vehicle to facilitate Created to Create Project.
Created to Create 2018: This year, Super Space is continuing to speak to artists. To further clarify our intentions, we are creating three groups:
Artists: Interviews with artists (in no particular order) with topics relating to the creative process.
Masters: Interviews with artists whose life and love of their craft led them to encourage development with a level of mastery that inspires others.
Image Makers: Artists who facilitate visual and artistic transformation with their craft and style.
ACTORS, ARTISTS, THEATRE MAKERS, FILM MAKERS, DESIGNERS, TEACHING ARTISTS, STUDENTS all chosen because they spend a part each day creating.
Introduce artists from different parts of the world - people who use different mediums and whose practice is at a different skill level. A thing they all have in common is unique sense of style and self-expression. Additionally, we aim to create online content to help us learn and grow, both in life and work.
In 2018, Super Space is creating short tutorials to help actors navigate their life and work.
