The Civic Media Fellows engage in collaboration with other artists, organizers and community members within their creative process. Some of them approach their work as an ongoing dialogue with members of their community about issues that matter to them. Others continually seek out collaborative partners for specific projects in which they need artists operating in different mediums. Terry Marshall, one of the fellows whose work is highlighted in greater depth in the Creating Futures section, also highlights collaboration as a process of creating networks that allow creators to remain small and agile. Instead of large institution building, he highlights the benefit of remaining flexible, quick and network-based. Within that framework, collaboration is ingrained in the process of how he sees the value of projects. For the fellows, collaboration not only results in new, multimedia projects, but also creative formations that enable sustained work for the purpose of communal action.
