Gone are the days of forcing people to watch your ad or visit your tent at a live event. Together, we’re creating irresistible creative encounters that draw customers into your story like never before.
The Creative City Project is quickly becoming THE global destination for performing and installation artists innovating in their fields. Let's collaborate with your brand.
Let's tell your story to the world in 3 easy steps.
CHOOSE a sponsorship level
COLLABORATE with our team of professional artists to create an irresistible performance or interactive installation around your brand's unique story at our live event.
Work together to CAPTURE the live experience in a compelling way to share with the world.
Here's an example
- We partner with a international automotive brand.
- That brand is featured as the event sponsor in our national ad campaign leading up to the event.
- At the event, we create an interactive keyboard (like in the movie BIG). The keyboard controls a series of melodic car horns and lights. When audience members jump on the keyboard, it plays the car horns and flashes the headlights.
- A team of videographers captures the live experience, and the video becomes a viral sensation beyond the life of the event.
Moving toward the kinds of innovative and world-changing partnerships between Walt Disney, Pepsi, and General Electric at the 1964 World's Fair.
Our partnership means you become one of the first international brands to associate yourself with world's next big arts experience.
What Art Basel has become for the visual arts and Miami
