Vans Checkerboard Day

In 2021, Jukebox Collective launched their Future Creatives initiative in partnership with Vans Checkerboard Day: a global celebration of community and culture. We successfully received a $50,000 fund from Tides Foundation to activate our projects to build vibrant, inclusive, and welcoming spaces to support local communities in Wales. Jukebox Collective curated and produced an evening of live performances and immersive art, inviting Welsh creatives and communities to explore their hopes and ambitions for the future.
