Kollektiv's First Ever Gallery

£3,615

86

"Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can."

Kollektiv will be a one month exhibition and event space in an empty high street shop. We are a kollekitv of 15 Brighton artists: giving workshops, selling artwork, using the space as a workspace, having open discussions, and getting involved with Brighton's community.

We learn by doing, so we're doing it!

Come along to one of our free workshops

FastArt: Generate, make, exhibit and sell all in one day, bring £1 each.

Drinkiedoodle: A fun evening of drawing games to get everyone back into drawing again.

Perceptiv: A workshop that gives an introduction on how to see the world around you as a representational artist.

Giant Consequences: As you can imagine, like little consequences, but a lot bigger.

And more!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyone can come to Kollektiv's space to buy artwork, discuss artwork, be involved in a workshop or just have a look at Brighton's emerging current talent, and enjoy the atmosphere!

We need your support:

Any money that you donate will (only) be used to pay for the rent, bills and insurance. By donating you're supporting young artists to stay in creative entrepreneurial roles whilst rejuvenating empty high street shops .

Your money will go towards 

1. The rent and bills of our empty high street shop

2. The printing costs of our incentives for you

3. Making sure that we can give our workshops for free

If we exceed our goal:

The money will be put towards the next pop up gallery/shop, that will have an open brief for students from schools, colleges and universities.

If we don't reach our goal:

Kickstarter’s policy means if we don’t reach our target £3500 then we don’t get to keep any of the money. This would be a great shame, so please give what you can and spread the word!

Risks and challenges

I (Sophie) finished my Music and Visual Arts degree from University of Brighton with a 1st class honours degree in the Summer of 2013. Since then I have also completed a short course in Entrepreneurship for Creatives course at the renowned Central St Martins University in London. The Kollektiv seedling has been nourished and mentored by Fusebox Amp, as part of Wired Sussex - an organisation supporting digital, media and tech innovation in Sussex (www.wiredsussex.com). Alongside Fusebox’s 25 highly regarded business mentors, Kollektiv is also supported by the University of Brighton’s Enterprise Department and the Arts department of Brighton and Hove Council. So, even though myself and 15 fellow artists have never run a pop up gallery before, our wide-ranging support from some of the most established and successful businesses and institutions in the region gives us the confidence that Kollektiv will not only succeed, but establish itself firmly in the Brighton arts scene for years to come.
