When do you use "collaborative" as a noun?

Merriam-Webster indicates it's acceptable to use "collaborative" as a noun. But then when do you use "collaboration"? What's the difference between the two, or are they interchangeable?

  • I never do. But, I guess you could call an organization in which people collaborate a collaborative. For example, "NYPA is an artists' collaborative, formed in 1979."
