Membership

WHY DO WE HAVE A MEMBERSHIP?


The NO Collective is an informal, non-governmental, not-for profit organisation.


This means that to ensure our organisation governance is working towards our ethos, aims and objectives, we have a membership of people guiding our activities in the right direction.


ETHOS: When producing collective artworks, we use democratic and non-authoritarian methods to make decisions.


This means that if we are working with creatives and artists from different professional levels and disciplines, everyone will have the chance to make decisions equally. This strengthens opportunities for young and emerging creatives to learn and get work experience, but also can inspire professionals, or challenge pre-conceieved ideas. Even the work becomes multi-layered - so everyone wins!


This Ethos is kept in mind when introducing young and emerging creatives to professional and commissioned projects.


An openmindedness towards learning is the most important requisite in joining The NO Collective.


#LibraryProject #community #culture
#eramus+ #Azerbaijan #internationalarts #travel

"NO is a social collective that bases its works around investigating micro-cultures and introducing humorous artwork to a mass of seemingly un-interested viewers; by using familiarity and stereotypes, and often games, ‘NO’ is keen to widen the understanding of contemporary art mediums and open the mind to subjects that are close to home"

- Founding Mission Statement

WHAT DO MEMBERS DO?


All of our members are completely different. Some join us in events, some are more active in what the collective is up to at home, whilst others choose to travel to youth training on our behalf. We often call on individual members for different things - for example, a writer may be able to help with an educational article, or a designer on some project brand work. It is not a collective that can guarantee you paid work, but we will help you where possible in creating fun and engaging projects that meet the collective's aims and objectives.


Most importantly, we make the most of having fun together with like-minded people!
