Big Fat Art Crawl

For the 2017 festival, Your Beautiful Collective will be running the Big Fat Art Crawl as part of the Art Licks Weekend tours, visiting some of the spaces contributing to the festival in and around the North-East of London. Seeing art is great by yourself, but when you’re part of a group it becomes an experience where we can voice our opinions, get to know what makes each other tick and – most importantly – make FRIENDS in the process. Your Beautiful Collective present the Big Fat Art Crawl so we can all have a look together. The crawl group will drop in on artists and curators, run for the bus, stop for a pint and mull over everything we’ve just seen. It’s a date! New friends, old friends and potential friends all welcome. Starting at GRAFT at 12pm and ending at Bunkhouse Projects.

Your Beautiful Collective is Ellie Barrett, Dani Bessner, Olivia Brazier and Sophie Rogers. Formed in 2015 to support emerging artists by showing work, linking communities and creating platforms for supportive critical discussion.

Tickets are £5pp / £4pp concessions. Book here.
