The Art of Collaboration


Andy Walmsley of Wash Studio will hold a talk and discussion about how collaboration has grown his role from Art Director to Creative Director to Director, working with photographers, filmmakers and artists to raise his standard of work at a special Art of Collaboration event.

The event will feature hosted rooms and creative roundtable discussions from Creative Lancashire, Wash Studio, The Artistry House and Studio JB, plus live art by the Cunning Craftsman.

Ed Matthews Gentle of Creative Lancashire will moderate a round-table discussion with creatives from across multiple disciplines sharing their respective experiences of creative collaboration and insights on how to achieve mutually beneficial results.

Chris Dorning aka The Cunning Craftsman will create a wall mural, live during the event, in The Artistry House backyard and speak about out how he has used his creative skills across a range of collaborative projects from street art to signage, interiors, TV campaigns and even his own book.

Studio JB architects’ practice will explain how they’ve used collaboration to bring projects to life, from sustainability and eco design to residential and urban regeneration.

The Artistry House director Lynsey Thompson said: “We think the best work comes when people come together – when different fields and crafts, insights and abilities mingle and meld. That’s why we created The Artistry House to provide a base for collaborators and a space for creativity.

“We’re pretty well-practised at the art of collaboration, so thought we’d take the opportunity to share our stories for an evening of great chat, good food and potential projects, providing delegates a chance to network and talk to some of the North’s most passionate collaborators about how we can do bigger, better business when we work together.”
