W(an)T Collective is a new small business that was formed by a group of talented friends/artists based out of Seattle, WA.
Our expertise ranges all the way from photography, videography (music videos, art instillation, short films, promotional/commercial), clothing designers, silk screening, and musicians.
We strive to maintain a set of standards in our work, keeping our impact in the world a conscious one. We want to provoke thought. Reveal the beauties and flaws of the world. We want to show the world what it is. Good or bad. Creativity and originality are hard to come by now a days and the world we live in tends to smother and muffle the Individual's voice.
We want to offer a vesicle for this voice. By providing a creative entity that encourages free speech, imagination, and originality. By providing products that are designed for a populations functionality. We want to offer our customers quality, well, designed, products that can be trusted and valued.
This past year has offered us a plethora of opportunity. With this growth the demands of our clients have increased as well. With all our equipment and recourses spread around the greater Seattle area it becomes difficult to orchestrate and organize with our clients because they have to drive around to all these locations as well...and thats just not convenient for anyone.
It is very expensive for us to drive back and forth to all of our houses/workspaces. To flourish as a cohesive, harmonious business…we need a solid location. A headquarters. A space to house all our equipment for clothing production, filming and photography, a space to design, print, and show. With having a solid work space we could put more money towards projects, a website, building sets, props, photo studio / dark room, show room, ect. We want to offer an atmosphere that encourages a mind to be free and expressive. Offering progressive thinking. This concept is very important to us.
With a new space we will be offering young kids and adults opportunities to submit an application for the chance to use professional equipment, in a professional environment. This will offer them experience in the real world and provide insight into their future endeavors. The accepted applicant will be given time in our space to design his/her own art. At the end of their allotted time period they will design an art show that we will host. After their show we will rinse and repeat but selecting a new applicant.
We need your help kickstarter….
Help us bring a vision together and give opportunity to talented kids/adults who may never be encouraged to let loose and not be afraid of how they think or feel.
The cycle and the journey that is our seasons. The beautiful and the decrepit qualities/stages of fall and winter.
