At first glance, The Creators Project, a brand new venture between Vice and Intel, sounds like something out of the future, a universe of collaboration and creativity crossing genres and technologies. In reality, it’s not that complex, but it’s still pretty overwhelming.
To put it simply, The Creators Project is a network dedicated to the celebration of creativity and culture across media, where musicians, filmmakers, designers, and artists will form unlikely collaborations and create new content.
Among the “creators” taking part will be Phoenix, Peaches, N.A.S.A., Diplo, Richie Hawtin, Mark Ronson, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Fool’s Gold, Laurent Garnier, and filmmaker Spike Jonze.
Their “creations” will be distributed at www.thecreatorsproject.com, via a variety of other media including print, television, and mobile, as well as series of public showcases across the globe.
The first event will take place at Milk Studios in New Yorks Meatpacking District on June 26th. It will feature performances from the likes of Interpol, Sleigh Bells, Die Antwoord, Gang Gang Dance, Salem, N.A.S.A., and Mark Ronson. There will also be exhibits from Zinner, Takeshi Murata, Karl Sadler, Mark Essen, and Radical Friend.
Ticket information for the event is still forthcoming, but the website promises it will be free for the “Creator community. That means you.”
Similar events are scheduled for London, Brazil, South Korea, and China in the months ahead. For more information, click here.
