Garage Collective


“Garage Collective was set up in my garage in Christchurch, Aotearoa/New Zealand around August 2007, with the explicit intention of avoiding the design and advertising  industry. The initial phase of my practice was to design and screenprint hand crafted posters from my garage—mainly gigposters and political posters. However, a growing interest in non-hierarchal, social justice politics meant a revaluation of the direction of Garage Collective took place in 2009. I found that I was no longer concerned with the visual language of subcultures, whether it be musical or artistic —but with using cultural work and creative processes as a framework for social change.”
