Thankyou!

A MASSIVE thankyou to all who swung by Queensbridge Square on Saturday - we felt exhausted but so glad of the apparent and visible success of the day REGARDLESS of the wind!

We thank thank THANK our amazing artists - Performprint with Joel Gailer & Jenny Hall, Sally Tape for Candida Powell-Williams, Andrew Rewald and collaborator, Veronica Caven Aldous, Tess Healy and collaborator, Hayley Hoopla and her Hoop Army, Gabrielle New and Lauren, Andrew Goodman and Tessa, Maggie Brown, Plastic Knife & Rupert Ramon via Fulsome Prism Recordings, Mira Oo and collaborator, Michelle Sakaris, Mitchell Brannan, Tania Smith, Damon Kowarsky & Hyun Ju Kim, Alanna Lorenzon, Nicholas Ives and Lucreccia Quintanilla. YOU WERE ALL AMAZING and thankyou for staying cool under pressure from the high pressure system!
What a day! Thankyou for giving it your all and ignoring the 'breeze'.

Our amazing support crew Tahls, Yvette, Susie and Philippa and our production goddess Naomi Velaphi and our marketing guru/photographer Beth Ellen Wilkinson and Robert our electrical handy man - thankyou for helping us to get this thing off the ground (omg...too literally at times on the day!!) and for helping to keep it on track. We really could not have done it alone. x

2016..

City of Melbourne Grant

The OK Collective have recently been awarded a City of Melbourne Arts Grant for use in 2016.
Due to this awesome contribution, we will be able to put together a one day event platform for various, local, interactive and collaborative artists to perform.
Focus is on artists whose work does not necessarily 'sit' well in typical gallery and viewing spaces and whose work often needs participatory interaction to become 'full' in practice.

Stay tuned for artists line up and the specific date, times etc for this event - occurring in later 2016....

 

MoreArt x VicTrack Award

Massive thanks to Moreland City Council, MoreArt2015 and VicTrack for their support of Suburban Therapy in 2015. The award will allow OK to proceed into 2016 with more ideas with which to work alongside Moreland Council and MoreArt2016!

The Inaugural Walter Burley Griffin Regatta and Workshops

The Incinerator Gallery in Moonee Ponds will be hosting the OK during Dec and Jan.
We will be running workshops wherein young and old kids can make a boat from recycled materials in order to sail it down the Maribyrnong on Regatta day, Jan 16, 2016!

Stay tuned!
