At the Reciprocity Collaborative, we believe the way to understand reciprocity is through practice. As an organization, we are committed to collaboration, sharing expertise through dialogue in a wide range of disciplines including clinical care, creative technology, social practice, and visual and performing arts.
Our mission is to create broad opportunities for meaningful collaboration. Since 2012, we have been fostering a network of creative professionals who actively make their process of collaboration visible to themselves and others. The creative network is ever-growing, and currently includes musicians, social practice artists, dancers, creative technologists, actors, mechanical engineers, clinical healthcare professionals, visual artists, and, cinematographers. Our events continue to develop and evolve, from workshops and lecture-demonstrations to site-specific performances and open format presentations.
Our vision is to create an international movement of creative, ethical practice. Our current projects focus on research, performance, and community engagement. From research in clinical care and community engagement to site-specific performance and interactive art, these explorations have included workshops at academic institutions including Harvard Medical School, Boston Conservatory, and DePaul University, artistic residencies at the Museum of Fine Arts and the National Parks Service, and interdisciplinary performances at the MIT Media Lab, Jacob’s Pillow, and TEDx. Community partners have included the Mayor's Office for New Urban Mechanics, AREA Gallery, Boston Harbor Now, National Parks Service, and the Black Sheep Ensemble.
