EMMA Collaboration

Emma2The EMMA Collaboration takes place every other year. The next Collaboration event will take place in 2018. MECA applications will be available in the fall of 2017.

In 2012, MECA introduced a new relationship with the EMMA International Collaboration, which brings 100 renowned artists and craftspeople together from around the world to create art in in the Boreal Forest of Northern Saskatchewan, Canada, a place where form and function collide. Known as “Emma,” this biennial week-long residency is an innovative workshop model for unstructured creative collaboration between artists working in traditional craft and those engaged in contemporary method and has become a catalyst for worldwide creativity in the arts.

One applicant is selected to represent MECA at the Emma Collaboration, which funds the $1,500 conference fee and includes meals and lodging. MECA funds the participant’s travel expenses up to $500.
