more about our collaborative partners:

+ cultureisland: cultureisland is a passion project by sara r. radin. this fall marks her second year pursuing her diverse creative interests; sara collaborates with emerging creatives, non-profits and brands to create unique experiences that celebrate all kinds of creativity.

+ wamoo papez: wamoo papez is juan alvarez's moniker. juan is a music producer and sound artist from new york. his music and audio collages have a basis in plunderphonics, meaning he primarily works with pre-existing sounds to make his beats. for his newest project, zebra, he used darker source material and heavier textures to create a body of work that reflects a deep depression he felt in his early 20s.

+ art start: art start is a 20 year-old award winning non-profit that uses creative arts to transform young, at-risk lives. the new york based organization runs daily workshops for kids living in city shelters, on the streets, those involved in court cases or surviving with parents in crisis. these workshops include music, art and dance programs that help instill confidence, hope and creative thinking in youth who are going through times of challenging transitions. *  as former volunteers in music and art, respectively, juan and sara are excited to partner with such a stellar organization. * 

+ ryan k. hall: ryan is an artist, designer and programmer from new york who's currently attending parsons for an mfa in design and technology. he employs various technologies like coding, laser cutting, 3-d printing and cad programs to turn emotions and imagery into innovative works of art. he designed wamoo papez's zebra album cover, capturing the depth of depression, madness and ingenuity.
