The Women in the Arts and Media Coalition, Inc. will present the 2015 Collaboration Award recognizing Women Working With Women. This is the fifth Collaboration Award presented by the Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, whose mission is to focus the power of its member organizations together and to use that combined strength to address issues of concern to women in the arts, media, and new media. The Coalition is committed to being the link between its member organizations as they work together to impact the various topics that affect women in our industry through advocacy, networking, and events.
The $1,000 Collaboration Award and additional honorable mentions are designed to encourage professional women in the arts and media from different specializations to work collaboratively on the creation of a new artistic work. As the aim of the award is to encourage women to work collaboratively with women of other disciplines, each collaborative team must be comprised of female members of different Coalition associations, unions, guilds and affiliates of The Coalition. Eligible teams may submit any form of creative collaboration on a new work that had its first public performance within the last two years, 2013-2015. A public performance can include, but is not limited to a staged reading, gallery show, screenings, concert series, etc.
Shellen Lubin, co-president of Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, Inc., states "For the Coalition, collaboration is particularly important to acknowledge for two reasons: first, as women are breaking down barriers in all these different disciplines, they have too often been the only woman on the creative team, and we want to honor women who choose to work with other women; second, we have been learning for awhile how women collaborating with other women often work together differently than men do with men, and even more so than men do with women. We want to honor these women's unique, ever-evolving collaborative processes."
