What is PROJECT2GETHER?

PROJECT2GETHER is a platform designed to bring people together and explore our imagination with the ultimate goal to make the world a better place. We  invite creative minds to share ideas outside the box and get involved with projects related to art, science and inspiring lifestyles. And most importantly, here at PROJECT2GETHER, we want to emphasize on the importance of having fun.

Our goal is to publish selected creative and innovative works into print publications, such as books and magazines. We also wish to share ideas by printing fun and cool T-shirts and by holding exhibitions of some of our art projects. However, at the moment we need your help to generate ideas and projects “outside the box” and inspire others. We want to spread our enthusiasm like a virus and become participants of executing peoples’ dreams of a brighter and smarter future for everyone. We are not certain where this project will lead us but we certainly don’t want to set limits. We are open to the endless possibilities our project emanates and we believe that our insightful members will lead us to the places we need to go. WE PULL THE TRIGGER, YOU FIRE THE GUN. Let’s THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.
