I Am Making Art

Our monthly I am Making Art events are led by artists who share their processes and inspirations with participants in a relaxed, hands-on activity. These sessions are suitable for all ages and abilities – the only requirement is that you come with a curious mind and a willingness to have a go.

For the April event, members of Bristol-based group the Collect host a series of collaborative art games designed to get participants working together to create drawings and poetry inspired by Surrealist and Dadaist exercises. Drop in at any point in the afternoon to make your own Exquisite Corpses, cut-up poems and more!

the Collect

The Collect is a cooperative of creative producers working out the role and nature of collaboration through the act of collaboration itself. It encourages generous exchange, exponential growth and peripatetic linking. The Collect generates words, gestures, pow wows, virtual encounters, substantial actions and, above all, invitations. It is a source and a resource.

The Collect is Anna Searle Jones and Victoria Tillotson, with Richard Edkins, Becky Hall, Gareth Jones, Nemia Maclachlan, Ben Owen, Phil Owen and others.
