Syde-Ide Collaborations was created out of a desire to change the paradigm of art. We seek up and coming artists, of all mediums, to create memorable, life-changing experiences for both artists and audiences alike. We are intentional about producing works that shed light on traditionally-marginalized communities. It is our hope that we can achieve this goal through an annual summer festival of theatre, dance, music, devised work, and visual art. Syde-Ide hopes that the works we produce will bring in new artists and audiences who might feel underrepresented in the community. We want to provide space for Fresh Eyes and New Voices to use art as a means to engage the community and connect on a deeper level.
