The "Seven With Another" Concept: Fourteen People - Seven Teams - One IDEA: Create something different.

“By inviting seven pairs of creatives from diverse fields to work together, we’re challenging them to look past their vastly different creative processes and skill sets and concentrate instead on what they do best – being creative.” Seven with Another.

The Seventh Edition of Seven with Another once again uniquely matched the pick of local creatives including a Maker and a VFX Director; a Musician and a Tattoo Artist; a Copywriter and an Architect; an Industrial Designer and Fine Artist; an Art Director and Fashion Designer; a Director/Photographer and Textile Designer; and last (but definitely not least) a Multimedia Artist and Performing Artist.

“The creative process can be very insular. No matter whether you’re a fine artist, a designer, a developer or a writer, coming up with – and executing – ideas can be a lonely process involving just you and your imagination.” Seven with Another

It is often at the edges that the most exciting things happen and this is where Seven with Another successfully pushes the possibilities of what can come through collaboration;

“The resulting collaborative artworks could be disasterous, or they could be truly mind-blowing, but what they definitely won’t be is boring.” Seven with Another.

Seven with Another’s Co-Founders Monique Kneepkens (Fries Need Mayonnaise) and Jessica Huddart (Creative Director at Josephmark or JM) are just as extraordinary as the creatives they bring together. Their passion ensures each new edition continues to evolve. To celebrate the seventh year, a selection of collaborative duos were invited back from each edition to share their experiences in a series of insightful public talks at the Brisbane Powerhouse.

The opening night was extremely refreshing because guests originated from a broad range of professions and interests; a true sign of success and Seven with Another’s wide reaching support. The Eighth Edition is expected to once again break new ground; create new conversations between unlikely creative pairings and offer a unique platform to imagine beyond the edges of professions.
