Creators Project


The Creators Project will return to New York from October 15 - October 16 by transforming the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn into a colossal two-day arts and technology festival.

After spending the year traveling the world, VICE and Intel's The Creators Project lands back in New York with a marquee lineup of live performances and original Studio works by groundbreaking artists, musicians, designers and filmmakers.

This year's festival will take to the streets of DUMBO, Brooklyn, erecting 30-foot sculptures, showcasing works from over thirty leading international artists, and featuring dozens of live music performances. The event will also include the world premiere of Karen O's psycho-opera, Stop The Virgens, along with film screenings and panels.

Original artworks include Life on Mars Revisited, an immersive short film of David Bowie's classic space-rock anthem from legendary music photographer Mick Rock and filmmaker Barney Clay; 'A Physical Manifestation of Ladies and Gentlemen, We Are Floating in Space,' a cathedral-like physical manifestation of the song created by Spiritualized's J. Spaceman and acclaimed film director Jonathan Glazer; and Origin, a striking thirty by thirty foot audiovisual installation by UVA and composer Scanner, which will be the largest responsive work ever created by the UK based artists.

The festival runs:
Saturday 12-10pm
Sunday 12-8pm
Except for Karen O at St Ann's, it's all free with RSVP.

A first glance I thought "wow, decent lineup". Then I saw the free part, now I can think of is "clusterfuck". I would pay for a good minifest, but I would avoid a free one.

Two words pretty much sums up last year's Creators Project and I'm sure BV will agree...DIE ANTWOORD! Hey...whatever happened to those guys anyway?

Funny how every festival in DUMBO is billed as "transforming the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn into a colossal two-day arts and technology festival."

Art festival music festival. All of them so "transformative". Just like all the yuppies.

For Walentas family it is all money in the bank.

Have Fun.

So It's kinda lame that they only let you RSVP for one day but they don't tell you which bands are playing on which days. I only give a fuck about Atlas Sound. Anyone have any guesses which day their playing??

Hope those of you that say they don't check the RSVP's are right. Kinda like the vans parties did.

they will 100% check RSVPS. last time they sent out confirmations to those who got in, and you had to go pick up a wristband - they had a full list with names. it was very strict.

Posted by Anonymous | October 1, 2011 10:04 AM

@Lawless 9:22 - You can easily RSVP for both days. You just have to go through the exact same RSVP process twice. Don't blame me if you get twice the amount of spam though ;-)

With Vice's track record of creating long lines when the inside of a venue is empty, why would anyone put themselves through this. Just buy a ticket to a real festival instead of hopelessly standing in line being an extra in Vice's corporate cock sucking commercial for itself.

Take away Florence and this event would be 1000x better.

@Lawless 9:22 - says live music is Sat, and no live music Sun, so i'd assume Atlas Sound is Sat?

Posted by Anonymous | October 1, 2011 4:34 PM

jonathan glazer collaboration with j spaceman? fuck yeah.

Posted by Anonymous | October 1, 2011 5:18 PM

I only listen about Atlas Sound.
