"Each year Sketchbook brings together more than 150 actors, visual artists, musicians, writers, directors, designers, and stagehands from all over the city to collaborate on this beautiful and ambitious undertaking," explains Founding Executive and Artistic Director of Collaboraction Anthony Moseley, of Sketchbook 14: 2049.
"Many participants return year after year, drawn by the energy and passion that drives the festival forward. Sketchbook serves as an invaluable opportunity for both seasoned and emerging artists to connect and grow together, turning our theater into a hub of talented individuals working together toward the common goal of bringing a broad array of innovative art to a diverse audience."
