COLLISION Art Collective and SUPRANU Records together for COLLISION FESTIVAL 2021 in Jakobstad Finland.
Collision Art Collective
“Collision Art Collective started as a performance group founded by Jenni Österlund and Jonathan Bäckström in 2018. The goal at the time was to combine their practises: visual arts and music in performances and events. In 2020 the group grew as artist Michele Ucceddu and graphic designer Sara Östman joined to produce the first ever Collision Festival in Jakobstad, Finland.
The collective wants to build a platform for contemporary arts and music where people can meet and create together. Our goal is to build a free community for different kinds of art where we push each other forward creatively.
Our long term goal is to create an annual festival that can grow and involve more creative people every year. We also want to work on our international exchange together with our partner company Supranu records in Sardinia (ITA). We chose the name “collision” to represent the collide we want to create between music and arts.“
COLLISION FESTIVAL is where arts collide,
The festival is a collision of arts, music, poetry, perfomances, painting, illustration, photography, video performs.
In 2020 due to the current Covid-19 situation in Ostrobothnia, the Collision team has decided to postpone the festival until may 2021.
To be sure to arrange the festival under safe conditions, the Collective decided to open an art studio in the center of Jakobstad on Storgatan 18 Finland
The Festival starts with the first Artist Christa Friberg.
Collision Art Collective Studio will be open to the public afternoons during a month leading up to the 14th of May.
The idea behind her open studio is to create social art, where the meeting between people and interaction with the visitor is the key element. Besides social art, Christa also uses recycled materials and handicraft in her artistic expression. exposing on the studio Windows
