Collective Minds Inc. is a company that provides artists the opportunity to collaborate with one another and express themselves in the greatest way they know possible- through art. Collective Minds has brought together artists ranging from spoken word, poets, drawers, painters, as well as musicians under one forum in order to, in their own unique way, define art. We at Collective Minds recognize that art does not have a clear cut definition, and we give artists the opportunity to showcase just that.
CMI was founded in 2014 and started as a magazine company with the purpose of giving artists exposure. Since then CMI has extended to social media, publishing and app development while still continuing to release new issues of the magazine. Since day one we have been driven to help artists in as many ways as we can and as we continue to grow the services we can provide to artists will expand as well.
