After 2015 Arts Collaboratory restructured its meeting points. While retaining the yearly assemblies, gone were the occasional “tents,” and institutional and artist residencies. In their place, the network introduced the Banga meetings. Assemblies and Bangas provide the context for the entire network to gather annually, and as needed. In doing so, the organization acts collectively and in person as a translocal organization to address important topics and issues, foster artistic collaborations, and renew bonds of friendship.
