the rabbit hole is an imaginary space that has propagated
an international residency program and creative think tank.

founded in new york in 2008,
the collective - comprised of a mischievous group of artists, storytellers, and visionaries - numbers 2000+ in 56 countries.

the collective seeks to stimulate new ideas about the self and other and to challenge culturally constructed limits and borders. a manifesto, written by its founders, bases its principles on deconstruction, and the reinvention of rituals and forms.

underneath a foundation of festivity and a celebration of disruption, the rabbit hole has created provocative participatory shows at the chelsea art museum, aboard a time traveling double decker bus in new york city, a catamaran in the mediterranean and a 21 day train journey across europe and the middle east, among other spaces
