WELCOME to The Cape Creative Collective.
OUR WEBSITE IS LIVE.
Jerzy Kosinski once said “the principles of art are not to portray but to evoke” and in a world of 7.674 billion people, Facebook, Instagram, Google and Youtube, the importance of evoking community, creativity and consciousness has NEVER been more important than it is now.
Born in Spring, 2020, The Cape Creative Collective was made with the intent to provide a platform for creators; to bring power back to the creatives and encourage a community that evokes change and appreciation for art, for ourselves and for the world.
As creatives, we acknowledged that we all need a platform to shine a spotlight on our work and to provide a community to premiere and feature the art that drips from the very pores of our society – that by coming together we form something so much bigger than just ourselves. Together we are stronger. Together we can create the space we want to see in the world, creating intimate events with a collective of artists and creators in a curated showcase of up-and-coming talent as well as shining a light on the people behind the art. Together we challenge the voices that say “how is art going to pay the bills?”. Together we resist the status quo that tells us “No matter what you do it will never be anything more than just a drop in the ocean”
Together, we are the ocean.
Art is the mirror we hold up to ourselves and one another, reflections of our experiences and our lives, our struggles and victories – reflections that come to define us. Stories that shape us; pieces that drive us; music that speaks to us, for us; paint that adds colour to the void. It is in our very nature to question the limits of our existence and as we do so, we change the world – as the very act of questioning reshapes the parameters of how we once saw it.
Live viscerally, create eternally.
Together we are the ocean.
