Colour Collective UK is a very young initiative, established in January 2018 in Newcastle as an independent, non-profit organisation to form an exciting, forward-thinking group interested in the dissemination of all aspects of colour.
Originally Colour Collective UK began its life in 2016 as the Northern Chapter of the Colour Group (GB), hosting a range of exciting events from Science to Art and beyond.
Our group is particularly interested in creating cross-disciplinary events which illustrate the magic of colour in all its breadth. With the support of both Newcastle University and Northumbria University, Colour Collective UK is set to evolve into a forum for anyone interested in colour from its perception to its application. We run on donations and sponsorship, allowing free access to all events. All events are tailored to the general public so no prior background knowledge is required.
Perhaps our group’s interest is best summed up with the following quote by Bachelor: “Colour is truly fluid: it spills over subjects and seeps between disciplines; and no one area can mop it up and claim a privileged or proprietorial relationship with the subject.” (Batchelor, 2008)
