Collaborations was born in 2012 and set out to showcase new work, new artists & an atmosphere that supports & encourages collaboration across different disciplines. We wanted to encourage artists, performers, theatre makers to start something, to take a leap into that project that has been in their heads for the last few months, to put pen to paper or chats to tea or chords to music or print to frame and make it happen. Collaborations provides a platform for work that is in development.
