Who are we?

Blank Media Collective is a not-for-profit arts organisation that strives to support emerging creativity by providing platforms and opportunities to share it with the wider community.

Our ethos is simple. We’re open, honest, and accessible to all.

How do we work?

Blank Media Collective operates in three simple and transparent steps:

Search, Support & Share.

We Search

Blank Media Collective unearths emerging talent through regular exhibitions opportunities, call-outs, submissions, and an ear to the ground. We actively nurture relationships with a range of major arts networks and organisations and regularly collaborate with cultural institutions, education centres and local communities.

We Support

We give emerging artists, writers, musicians and performers the time and support they need to really focus on their craft. We curate and produce high profile exhibitions and live events in and around Manchester and we publish writers and artists online on our website. We also offer creative development through mentorship, workshops and creative courses.

We Share

We help to shine a spotlight on our supported artists through high profile exhibitions in our gallery space; promoting their work through our various networks and marketing links.

Our website allows us to share art, writing and music with thousands of readers each week.

Website Development
This project was developed with the help of the team at Koba Web Design who share our love of all things ‘design’.
