The Department of Creative Works of SCW is the fiery heart and soul of what makes Sansami successful and vibrant. We serve as a free space for writers, artists, and creators of all kinds to explore and collaborate on projects for the company, but also of their own design. We believe that theatre and art are not only places for action and direction, but also a realm of discovery and creation and we create this space to let those with the imagination be unhindered. The Head of Creative serves as a negotiator, coordinator, and delegate of artist-developed goals and assignments to ensure that there is both accountability and flexibility as needed. Beside the advising of SCW leaders, artists of the Department are free to work on their own projects or collaborate with other artists to work toward company created goals, such as the script of the annual production of Spotlight, Tonight . If you have any interest in joining as an artist in the SCW Department of Creative Works, please contact the current Head of Creative through the Board of Directors page.
Annual Project: Spotlight, Tonight!
In 2014, Sansami Creative Works set out to make a statement to the residents of Champaign County: Art should be more accessible. As a start-up company, the founding members of Sansami knew they wanted to create a forum where all art forms were appreciated and accepted, while honoring true artistic integrity.
