If you've been here before, then you probably know who we are and what we are all about. If not...then read on. There once was a thing called "The Showcase of Original Music". It used to happen at The Creative Center in Greensboro, NC. It was a great little show with an open mic segment followed by a featured artist or two. Over the course of a year and a half it began to catch on and while It was a lot of fun for us putting it on each month, it also seemed like something people enjoyed and increasingly sought out. When the time came to end its run we, as part of the team that put it together,  didn't want to see the fun stop or the people lose access to great, local original music. But the nagging question was "What do we do now?". Well...believe it or not, the answer was "Start a company", so that's just what happened. Born from the creative collaborations we had begun forming, "The Collabative" came into existence in 2013. If you look closely at the spelling, you may see how we fused the words collaborate and creative together to name the new endeavor. There is something freeing about having created our own unique name; it speaks to how we approach things in the creative world nicely. So put your dictionary away or shut your search engine down. It's our word spelled our way and this is our home. We hope you like it and what we do. What you'll see on the different pages are just the tip of the iceberg for us when it comes to the kinds of things we want to explore and present. Each new day offers many new possibilities to consider and perhaps bring to fruition. Wanna "play"? Well... come on! Wanna "observe"? Then, browse away, and/or attend our shows. Either way, your interaction is the lifeblood of what we do. Thanks for being here and please drop by more!
