We are Now What Collective, a group of diverse creatives from BA Illustration at Camberwell College of Arts. Now What Collective was formed to showcase our work as we transition from the relative security of higher education into professionals in the creative industry, leaping into the unknown.

We want to highlight the precarity of the world we are entering, the struggles involved in achieving success in our respective fields, and the possible rewards available to those willing to work for them.

We are currently fundraising and preparing for our end of year show, which will be held at the Menier Gallery in London Bridge from the 18th to the 22nd of July.

What will your money support?

Publication:

The Now What publication is going to work in tandem with the show, featuring images and information of each student's work. It is also going to focus on the transition of past and present graduates into the workplace. we hope to include essays, interviews and articles on the reality of transitioning into a work environment, both in and outside of the creative field. The money will be used mostly to cover print costs, with contributors and designers working entirely for free.

Venue:

For the venue, we have been lucky enough to secure Menier Gallery (www.meniergallery.co.uk). It is a fantastic space in a great location just off London Bridge and next to Borough Market. The gallery is donating all of the money from the venue booking to the Paintings in Hospitals charity (www.paintingsinhospitals.org.uk) so all of the money that goes towards venue hire will help this great cause.

With every donation, we will send you a personal thank you message and invitation to our private view, on the 18th of July. We are offering original pieces of art and limited edition items to give everyone a taste of what will be exhibited in our show. Here is our selection of some of our rewards:
