We are a creative organisation that supports artists by bringing them together to exhibit affordably. We provide a platform for unrepresented artists, who otherwise wouldn’t see their work in the context of an exhibition or the public, a kind of incubator and amplifier for home-grown talent. By joining forces with artists from the entire creative spectrum, of varying disciplines and experience, we want to be inclusive, to nurture talent and ideas, and a thriving creative atmosphere and network.
We support great ideas and self-development by encouraging collaborations, and providing volunteering opportunities in all aspects of the collective including opening up curatorial and production opportunities too. We develop exhibition ideas and projects together as a collective.
With an emphasis on presenting pieces and projects that push the boundaries of art we inspire audiences to explore new creative practices too. We hold free creative workshops in our exhibition spaces for the public. And through our example of exhibiting affordably we are an example to everyone of how you should strive to show your art to the world, not just keep it ‘in your bedroom’.
We have found that when you get people interested in creating together then they all benefit, developing their own practice, finding an audience and carrying out large scale projects that they wouldn’t be able to on their own.
Why are we called The Bedroom Artists Collective?
Many artists work without a studio, even from their bedrooms. And so, we called ourselves the Bedroom Artists Collective. In the harsh environment today, with studios and exhibition spaces un-affordable for most emerging artists, we support each other through collaboration.
