The Authentic Artist Collective is the network for those who have participated in an Authentic Artist Workshop and the production company for the new work it creates.
After taking a workshop, there are opportunities to remain connected with other participants and the wider community.
There is a private Authentic Artist Facebook page (separate from the general Authentic Artist Collective page) where people post links, photographs, ask questions, discuss artistic issues etc. This is a great resource and well used by the community.
There are also Authentic Artist Asylums in London & Edinburgh, where 'AA's come to share their current work or practices and connect with the community as sharers or witnesses.
Within the wider Collective, much artistic collaboration has occurred and continues to occur. The Collective has members in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the USA, France, Denmark, Australia and Finland.
