Link Link Club is......a club of artists and makers executing projects with the common tie of the Link-Link philosophy::: Through the exchange of ideas, experiences, and emotions new ideas arise that can help shape our future. Our mission is to recognize the gray area where people's professional interests, hobbies, and creative practices overlap as a spark for collaboration and dialogue.
The Link-Link philosophy highlights the fact that creativity does not solely exist in art galleries; rather, artistic practice is a behavior we all share. This philosophy draws from influences of cross-disciplinary collaborations in many alternative groups over the past 100 years and relies on the influences of communal research, experimentation and conversation in order to reveal the fecundity of collaboration across disciplines.

Link-Link Supper Club Lecture Series
LLSCLS is a community-curated lecture series hosted by nine Link-Link Club Core Contributors (LLCCC) at Dreamers Welcome. Each month LLCCC invites 2 guests to become lecturers on a topic outside of their core focus of study. This series instigates in-person dialogue to explore the grey-zones where people’s interests and intuitions overlap. The exclusive yet comfortable setting is key to the project; each lecturer invites 10 dinner guests to join Link-Link Club as audience members. The lecturer’s chosen topic is presented in a 30-minute format followed by pizza allowing for the interaction of strangers to continue to extend past small talk.
