About Springboard Collective

Springboard Collective produces interactive, immersive exhibitions. Their projects are highly collaborative and aim to create inclusive experiences in fun, socially-activated environments. They encourage the audience to become the performers and find creative expression within the exhibition theme. Their multifaceted process allows ideas to continually evolve throughout the duration of the exhibition as it brings together many collaborators that contribute to a unique lens which participants then continue to help shape throughout their experience. In this way, the playful, engaging nature of their projects blurs the lines of the art experience and offers creative release and transformative escape.

Started in 2014, the collaboration is co-directed by Danny Crump, Sarah Dahlinger and Micah Snyder. Springboard has recently exhibited at Flux Factory (NYC), Practice Gallery (Philadelphia), Knockdown Center (NYC), and Little Berlin (Philadelphia).
