Solo Collective (SoCo) nurtures the development of mid-career solo artists and their audiences through cross-disciplinary exchange, peer-driven workshops, and panel discussions. SoCo was conceived in response to the lack of resources available to solo artists to develop their work outside of a commercial and result-oriented workspace. It was created to provide a forum where pieces at all different stages of development could be nurtured and then shared publicly with a supportive audience of peers and collaborators.
Projects are incubated during the calendar year with a two-week focus on each project that results in a free public performance. No piece is promised a production with AFO in the future, and no team of artists will be asked to give AFO the right of first refusal.
