COMPACT ASSEMBLY is an ongoing project that serves to showcase a diverse range of artistic practices from a completely multidisciplinary perspective. This international collective was formed in the city of Baltimore in 2017 and, through time, has evolved to better support and celebrate the work of such a diverse crowd. In this panel, discussion members of the collective reunite to discuss their project goals and the ways in which COMPACT ASSEMBLY breaks away from individual tendencies and seeks to maintain an environment of integration and community engagement.
