Co-creation and collaboration in the public art work of “Narratives in Space + Time”

Mary Elizabeth Luka

As a member of a tightly-knit artist group that presents & documents narrative-based public art walks & through digital mapping, I recognize the complex nature of the concept of collaboration, and its reliance on related concepts such as “co-creation”, “narrowcast audiences” and “creative citizenship”.

We aim to facilitate co-creation of meaningful content with other artists & the public, resisting scripting these collaborations.

What works? What doesn’t? How do we know?
