To become a successful artist, one must become a part of the community and culture. Just as much as art-making makes an artist, so does participating in the community by attending openings and exhibitions at museums, galleries, and cultural spaces. This is relevant not only for networking purposes but also for cross-referencing your own position and place at this particular moment in time.

This can be advantageous for both the artist and the curator, who may gather exhibition ideas, installation hacks, methods and techniques in addition to catalog ideas to present the work in documentation and text.

Community participation also allows for collaboration with artists, art spaces, and culturally relevant non-profits. Attending such events with business card-in-hand and a soft proposal can lead to potential collaborations.

While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home!

Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.
