Sometimes all it takes is a moment in time, and in the moment all seems clear. As a surfer paddled by, with a huge grin on their face, a single word was exclaimed. That word was YES and saying yes, has become the objective.
The Yes Collective was formed by Will Bartlett, out of a desire to work in a new way, with a methodology that completely engages the clients and artists and engineers. The collective must agree unanimously to work on a project, with all members defining their roles and responsibilities. From a place of complete commitment, the Collective takes the opinion that nothing is impossible and the unbelievable can be realized.
We seek out artists who are willing to commit and contribute either existing or new work, to integrate and create as the projects require. We cultivate engineers, who see the world a bit differently and provide unique solutions to problems, known and unknown.
Ultimately we believe that a dedicated group of passionate individuals can do anything, because we have in the past, and we will in the future.
