Collage News & Inspiration
Hello and welcome to the very first Weekender of 2023!
We hope all of you have recovered from the festive season and that your year started with peace, love and sunshine. Here at PCC, life is back to normal. We managed to sort our website issues just in time for the end of last year. The website and our email accounts have been running normally again since the 31st of December. Thank you again for your patience and understanding.
We are also happy to AGAIN announce the finalists of our Open Call in collaboration with PARIS ANIM’ Centre Rachid Taha. After last week's newletter and two separate announcements on Instagram you can now also find all collages neatly presented on our website by clicking here.
And now as always and without further ado, the latest collage news, webinars, workshops and inspiration.

ARTICLE: Collage art is such an easily accessible but powerful medium. I’ve been inspired by working with fellow Black artists Kemi Craig and Jeffery Ellom, and the art that came out of the dream technology show I curated earlier last year at FLUX Media Art Gallery. My piece through my father’s eyes (currently featured in the group show The Stories We Belong To) uses weaving as a collage technique to refigure some of my own photography and explore identity, context, and perspective.

EXPO: A collage exhibit illustrating the beauty of complex systems like social networks, cities, the human brain, and even the entire universe is coming to the ACT Art Gallery - Collage exhibit on complex systems coming to Maple Ridge art gallery - via Maple Ridge News
