DIWO [do it with others]

The world of independent arts thrives on strong communities and cooperation. For small art and music collectives, like HALF PAST NOW, nothing would be possible without those who share our vision, help us and inspire us. Whatever we do, we don’t do it ourselves, we Do It With Others. With the DIWO event series, we want to highlight the value of creative collaboration and provide an opportunity for like-minded people to exchange ideas and knowledge. Part of the programme will also be dedicated to the ongoing russian invasion in Ukraine and the effects of the war on creative communities.

DIWO comprises four events, each with a different format and theme. To kick off the series, we will host a panel discussion centred around the motivations and experiences of running projects collaboratively. The second event will shine a light on the often underappreciated role of the VJ, with experienced artists sharing their tricks and techniques. Continuing the series, we will present the Easthetics art exhibition, showcasing visual artworks from independent eastern European artists. In the final event, we will discuss how the brutalities of war affect creative expression.
