Forming a Collective - Sat 9 Mar

Sat 9 Mar
1.30pm – 5pm
ARC, Stockton

Being an artist can be a lonely business but not when you’ve got your mates around you. If you’ve ever wanted to set up your own artists collective or even if you’re just curious, join Slate as we uncover everything you need to know to get started.

Afshan D’Souza-Lodhi from the Yoniverse will take you through the practicalities and pitfalls of working as part of a collective. By the end of the workshop you’ll have your own manifesto and enough fire in your belly to take over the world.

The workshop will look at the creative side of forming a collective (e.g. identity, ethos, creating a manifesto) as well as the practical side of things (e.g. organisational structure, working with organisations, getting paid, division of labour). Afshan will use a mix of case studies and practical exercises to guide you through the first steps of setting up and running a collective.
