REACHING BEYOND THE ARTS
The more complex the problems our global society faces, the greater the need to collaborate. The last few decades have seen experts from an increasing variety of backgrounds collaborate to address the world’s most pressing issues, from climate change to public health, from global poverty to education access. We are convinced that artists as well need to reach beyond the arts in order to create work that is both relevant and credible to the larger conversation. Kaimera was born out of this belief.
We have had the opportunity to work with environmental, social and medical scientists, economists, physicists, psychologists, policy-makers and local residents and community members on over a dozen interdisciplinary performances and performance-events.
We believe that this collaborative approach fuels new ideas and new perspectives for artists and scientists alike, and more often than not, redefines the way they engage with their own work.
In reaching beyond the arts, Kaimera contributes to a movement that prioritizes cross-disciplinary collaboration, striving to build upon this legacy by establishing coalitions of like-minded organizations, and advocating for cross-discipline work to become the norm, rather than the exception.
