Every two years, one hundred artists from across the globe come together in the boreal forest of Saskatchewan to share in an experience of raw creation and open possibility.
The Emma International Collaborations are an innovative workshop model for un-structured creative collaboration between artists working in traditional craft and those engaged in contemporary method. Emma has become catalyst for worldwide creativity in the arts. Since adopting this new spontaneous approach to learning several collaborative events across the world have emerged. Notably: Collaboration NZ, McGregor's Bay, New Zealand; Echo Lake, New Hope, PA; Hawaii Collaboration, Holualoa, HI; Art in the Pearl, Portland OR; Collaborations, Sydney Australia.
