The Creators Project—which launched last year with an epic party, and describe themselves as "an ongoing global initiative dedicated to supporting artists in realizing their creative visions through technology"—is returning later this year with a "colossal cultural extravaganza." The centerpiece of the week-long event? The world premiere of what's being called a pyscho-opera, by none other than the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O, to be held at St. Ann's Warehouse (it will likely be one of the last productions there). They're describing it as "an assault on the tragic joys of youth."

The entire week of events will be all over DUMBO, and will include music performances, art exhibits, panels and screenings. We'll publish more details as they arise, but for now, save the month: this is all happening in October!
