Collab#1 by Now&Them

Where have the last two months disappeared to?

Collab#1 by Now&Them.

“What?” you say. Our communications agency Paper Stone Scissors started a platform called Now&Them, celebrating creativity in society.

We launched with an event called Collab#1 – an exhibition that encourages collaboration across multiple industries. Furniture Designer x Chocolate Factory, Graffiti Artist x Skull Collector, Electro DJ x Beijing Opera Singer, the list goes on and the possibilities are endless…

Being the main organiser of the event, every spare minute of each day was poured into the event. We gathered together 60 people from 19 countries and 20 professional occupations to come together in Shanghai and create a piece for Collab#1. They each expressed what “now” means to them and the results were amazing.

Here are some of the pieces:

Held at The Gallery in Shanghai from December 6-12, we were hyped that it was such a success with over 400 people at the opening night and more than 80% of the pieces have been sold so far. All proceeds will go towards the I Care Project by Stepping Stones, providing essential eyecare to disadvantaged children in China.
