August Collectives is a unique residency format with no fixed outcomes – unlike a studio residency artists have been invited to develop, devise and hash-out collective working practices in our gallery. The gallery will be open throughout August, encouraging artists to develop works in conversation with the public and community. By making development public, and polished outcomes irrelevant, August Collectives hopes to encourage resident artists to expand on what is meant by collective working.
This year’s line up is a mash-up of workshops, performance, live making and expanded exhibitions.
August Collectives 2019 programme has been curated by APT artist-member Lulu Cottell. It is supported by APT Projects - a funded programme enabling artists to develop their artistic practice within APT Gallery and Studios.
