Collide Factory Closes FAT Village Location

Sad news for Fort Lauderdale creatives began circulating yesterday: The Collide Factory warehouse space has closed its location in FAT Village digs and is looking for a new spot. The Juice's Stefan Kamph reports that the venture founded by Travis Webster is closing its doors "due to overwhelming complications," according to a Twitter post Thursday.

The brightly decorated space, segmented by graffiti-covered shipping containers, was positioned as a platform for art, music, and performance -- as well as an office environment for artistic pursuits during the day.

New Times has not reached Webster for further comment, but this statement is posted at

Friends, after 1 year of hard work and tons of adventure I have decided

to close the doors to our FAT Village location and move to a new space. I

am excited to share with you the next steps for Collide Factory,

including all behind the scenes reasons why Collide Factory was created.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing everything on an undisclosed

website, there's much to tell. For those who want to know more details

regarding Collide Factory and things I learned during it's South Florida

life cycle, please send me a message below. I would love to hear your

feedback, testimonials or comments, both good and bad. Thank You!

We'll provide more details on Webster's next move when they are available.
