About

gab, a social arts practice that collaborates on creative processes. It combines art, advocacy, education and research to create projects driven by the need for social justice.

 We support people in addressing existing interests / issues / ideas, and with them structure original programs to explore their endeavours.

gab generates social, playful, informal, educational spaces; offering different processes, outcomes, events and relationships to be formed. It does not subscribe to a ‘how to create’ ethos- it is less of a indoctrinated programme, not occupying a position of pedagogical or creative mastery but more an equal position of exchange and collaboration so people can educate and create something themselves.

For gab conversation is an integral part of our work. It is an active, generative process that can help us speak and imagine beyond the limits of fixed identities and official discourse; opening a locus of differing meanings, interpretations and points of view. It is through this discursive framework which the various participants can exchange insights, observations and establish discoveries.

For more information, collaborations and to know how you could get involved please contact us: gabcollective@gmail.com or call (+44) 07841712302
