The Collect is a cooperative of creative producers working out the role and nature of collaboration through the act of collaboration itself. It encourages generous exchange, exponential growth and peripatetic linking. The Collect generates words, gestures, pow wows, virtual encounters, substantial actions and, above all, invitations. It is a source and a resource.
The Collect is Anna Searle Jones and Victoria Tillotson, with Al Cameron, Richard Edkins, Becky Hall, Gareth Jones, Nemia Maclachlan, Ben Owen, Phil Owen and others.
