About us

This is who we are; this is what we do.

Founded by Sara Davies and in partnership with Acini Event Management, strengthcollective is an artist-led organisation based in the heart of Reading.

We understand that artists come in all shapes and sizes, and that everyday life can so easily impact on creative output. And so we hope to shape an artistic community that is flexible and non-pressured; where artists can share work and experiences within a lovingly critical framework. We also understand that many artists do not fit neatly into a category – that their practice is fluid and responsive to the concepts it encounters. One day that practice may be sculpture – the next charcoal drawing – the third live performance. As a collective we want to harness this fluidity. Learn from it. Build upon it. Collaborate with it.
