Central Station, Dundee Pop-up Tour

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being invited along to the new arts collective, Central Station's Touring event in Dundee to speak about the process of collaboration.

My speaking-partner was Genevieve Ryan, an illustrator and recent graduate of ECA, with whom I worked last year. We were asked to provide some insight into our work and practice, focusing on the collaborative Text/Image piece we published last year as part of an ECA/Edinburgh Uni partnership.

The other participants came from a diverse range of disciplines; underground music festival creators, digital music, zines, graphic art etc.

Yuck & Yum - arts organisation & zine
Johanna Basford
& Lyall Bruce (aka SooperDD) - illustrator & graphic artist collaboration
Arika - creators of underground music and film festivals
Genevieve Ryan & Jo Swingler - illustrator & writer collaboration
Colliderscope - animation & musician collaboration
V&A Dundee - a talk from the action group Co-ordinator, Georgina Follett

It was great hearing how the different groups worked together and what the thinking was behind each collaboration.

Having enjoyed the process so much, Gen and I are definitely up for creating a longer piece; possibly a complete collection of images/stories.

Lots to look forward to and I'll be exploring the Central Station site more...there's so much exciting work there already...
