What Collective is the brainchild of Mike Clews the Director of Art and Community at Wild Woods. Our goal is to use a collective effort to bring the spotlight on individual artists, specifically visual artists both static and performance.
This idea formed at Wild Woods 2015. The art and community department of the festival was a great success and we realized we have the ability to bring this to other events. We understand that live painters and flow artists can be bought at lower rates but we are sure we will go above and beyond expectations and take the look of your event to the next level.
. At our most basic we are a rental company. Our vision is to act as an all in one featured artist program that includes building a gallery on site and managing the artists. We aim to create a space where art can be displayed and artists can personally be appreciated.
We offer high caliber talent and professional work ethic. We hope to prove to the community that visual arts are an integral part of a festival and that our artists deserve to be paid. Our business model is based upon splitting our structure rental fees to help subsidise the artists. We are completely self sufficient with our own build team.
