Groups and Spaces

Groups and Spaces was an online platform that gathered together information on people making art in groups and collaborative situations, groups that run art spaces, and independently run artist spaces and centres. The site serves as an opensource portal for artists, educators and citizens to learn more about these working methods and connect with resources in their area. The platform aims to facilitate dialogue about community engagement, collaborative practices and provide educational resources for new audiences.

The project also involved the development of Mobile Library Unit prototype, design by Janette Kim and Josh Draper. Re-imagining the idea of a reference desk and of what we classically consider the function of a library. The Mobile Library Unit allows participants to exchange their local knowledge and experience with art groups, spaces, or projects for consultation or advice.
