The Creative Collective is an Art Gallery within a Cafe (Bauhaus Cafe), Ashford. The Gallery offers local artists a space to exhibit work, with some wonderful works of art on show, as well as photographs by the Ashford Photographic Society.
We strive to make art affordable for everyone and offer an Affordable Art Scheme where art can be purchased by monthly installments; prints of work at the gallery can be ordered to size and we can organise for them to be framed for you. A variety of designs and pieces can be reproduced on mugs, scarves and glass under our Artware range.
We are a collective of artists of all disciplines and photographers in Ashford, Kent. We have come together to build a community to enhance the creative experiences of local residents and organisations. We work with schools, colleges, businesses and community groups to deliver events and unforgettable cultural experiences.
We offer themed exhibitions, talks and presentations, workshops, courses, advice and information, volunteering and networking opportunities, and events around town as well as an exhibition space which can be hired daily, weekly or for longer term. It is also a place for artists and creatives to exchange ideas and work together on collaborative projects and events, and a place where artists can come and produce work.
We are always looking for volunteers to bring us a variety of skills so if you would like to help at the gallery whilst gaining experience in the creative sector, send us your CV or simply bring it to the gallery and have a chat with us.
Come and visit us at Bauhaus Cafe, Ashford to find out how to get involved.
