We had an away day recently, it was wet, cold, muddy but energising and fun and has left me with a load of nagging questions as well a lot of comedy photo’s of James, Sam, Sylvia and Sita trying to fly in the wind on table mountain. I wonder, aside from the big question of whether man will ever fly without machine….
What are the current models / approaches for mid career artists to look to for a sustainable practice in the current climate, and can the strength of a collective community be one approach?
Are artist led collectives often age specific? Is there a natural drop off as we get older?
What does a coherent collective voice sound like? Bland? A mess? Confused? Diverse?
