The 2016 Emma International Collaboration is a weeklong invitational event for professional and

emerging artists which encourages a sharing of knowledge and skills through unrestrained art-

making in a variety of media. There are no ‘rules’ per se, except to work and to experience the

creative energy that has been assembled at this time, and in this one location. The primary

focus while at Emma is to work collaboratively on a variety of projects that can, and often, do

involve any number of artists. The Collaborative approach to art-making, found at Emma, has

given rise to a new way of learning and teaching. Every artist at Emma becomes a teacher, a

student and a mentor; artists are there to give, to accept and to inspire.

The location is also a catalyst for learning, teaching and inspiring. The Ness Creek Site is

nestled in the boreal forest and art making is done outside surrounded by nature.

Accommodations vary from rustic cabins, tenting or trailers. Meals are provided by a wonderful

local caterer and a mixture of BYOB and Cantina operating hours makes for a very social
