The OneFiveEight collective was formed by a group of creatives in 2006 and now has members across the north of England. The collective includes contributors specialising in a range of creative pursuits including Artists, Photographers, Writers, Illustrators, Web Designers, Musicians, Producers and Sound Technicians.
“We strive to find unrecognised talent and help promote those who struggle to be noticed in a world of over commercialisation. In the early days our efforts were put into creating online Zines. Some of these can be found on our website which is now our central form of communication. We now focus on Exhibitions and Events which are usually based around a concept or a theme.”
In 2013 the collective held a range of exhibitions in Manchester and Salford including the Expo:02 residency at Islington Mill which included a multi disciplinary exhibition and club night. In 2014 they plan to continue, with the upcoming Expo:03 event launching on May 17th
“Our mission statement is simple, to promote none commercial creativity and un-recognised talent.”
