The Clandestine Collective Logo by: Eleanor Haswell
Clandestine describes something kept secret, but that is the exact opposite of the goal of the Northern England-based Clandestine Collective, a female identified art collective that formed earlier this year. I had the chance to talk with the Pulp Zine’s own Georgia Grace Gibson, who is one of the Clandestine Collective’s founders, about starting the collective, working with other young artists, and what it is like to be an artist in a place without an art scene.
Where can I purchase your anatomical lingerie? I am a doula and CBE and would LOVE the set as a teaching tool!
I’m sorry, they can’t be purchased the design was solely for my art piece
I'm from the North East, but I'm moving down south for uni in September - would I still qualify for this collective, or would you rather have members that are constantly in the north east?
Honestly we’re looking for people who have access to the north east primarily. We don’t need people who are constantly in the north east, the majority of our members aren’t, but we need people who do have access to the north east (via train, car, whatever). You should still apply! South is pushing it a bit, but we’re not 100% ruling it out, and I do like that you’re actually from the north east. There’s no harm done by sending some stuff over for us to have a look!
I’ve recently joined Clandestine Collective, a new north east based and female identified art collective which includes various types of individual and creative artwork, you can follow here: http://clandestinecollective.tumblr.com Twitter: @clandestinecoll Instagram: clandestinecollective 🍑🌸 my art blog is running also; www.meghangraydon.tumblr.com🌸🍑

Happy to announce I’m working within a new project named ‘Clandestine Collective’! The collective is aiming to create safe space for young female identified artists of all forms and subjects to explore similar artists ideas and exhibit their work within the north of england (a place with a very small young art scene, with nothing like this previously existing). We’ve already managed one exhibition and are currently looking into more. I’m really excited to be working on this, and the chances are if you like my work you’ll most likely like the work of the artists involved alongside me! The tumblr is clandestinecollective.tumblr.com and I’d really appreciate it if any of you gals followed it and checked out the work we have on there so far; we’re also looking into expanding the group at the moment, and so to apply to be part of the collective you can email your work and a small description of yourself and work to firstname.lastname@example.org! If you know any great young northern artists let them know/or simply reblog this post so we can discover some new talent to exhibition with. Exciting stuff!
So so so excited to be a part of our new upcoming collective for North East based art. Here’s the logo design designed by myself and a link to the Clandestine Collective itself!
