Notes on Collaboration is a publication with curated personal responses to an invitation to think about the notion of togetherness and collaboration in an expanded sense. Each of the authors come from a different artistic discipline, yet all work with collaborative practices which allowed them to engage with the subject differently, sharing propositional or reflexive stances on past choices, faults, and doubts, to engage you with their thought process.

Notes on Collaboration includes a personal essay, a manifesto, a conversation, an open letter and a two-player board game.

With texts from Rana Ashraf, Dina Jereidini, Omar Kassab, Engy Mohsen, and Qaaf Laam Collective and further contributions by Sherifa Hamid and Ahmed Morsi, Ma Yo with an excerpt from Hal Foster and Josh Winfield. A guest performance by Mariam Azmy. Design by Engy Mohsen and Youssef Salah. Photography by Eslam Abd El Salam.
