COLLABORATIONS.

EACH COLLABORATION with the bettys IS UNIQUE AND IN DIRECT COLLABORATION WITH CREATIVE DIRECTOR, AURORA DIAZ. FROM EVENTS TO PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, THE BETTYS DABBLES IN ALL ASPECTS OF CREATING IN A PROFESSIONAL AND FUN MANNER. EACH COLLABORATION IS DIFFERENT AND WE’RE CONSTANTLY TRYING NEW THINGS. THERE ARE VARIOUS REASONS FOR THIS.  IN THE CURRENT ERA OF ART, artists HAVE VERY LIMITED RESOURCES UNLESS THERE IS AN INSTITUTIONAL ATTACHMENT.  EVERY PROJECT HEAVILY DEPENDS ON THE AMOUNT OF RESOURCES WE CAN COME ACROSS, FROM FUNDING TO PHYSICAL SPACE TO CUTTING DOWN ON OUR ECO WASTE, ALL THESE MOVES TAKE REAL CAREFUL CALCULATIONS WE TRY TO BALANCE OUT QUICKLY. WE’RE MASTERS AT GOING BACK TO DRAWING BOARD AND CAREFULLY DIVISING A PLAN TO CREATE SOMETHING THAT CAN BE USED AS A PLATFORM BY UNDERREPRESENTED ARTISTS.  

BELOW OUR SOME OF OUR AVAILABLE OPEN COLLABS, IT IS SUGGESTED YOU INQUIRE ASAP AS THESE GET FILLED PRETTY QUICKLY.
