The Post Collective

The Post Collective is an autonomous platform of co-creation, co-learning and cultural activism for refugees, asylum seekers, sans papiers and accomplices. It seeks to introduce a range of artistic, cultural and work opportunities and to provide a collaborative environment for its members regardless of their legal status. The collective arose from the 2018 Open Design Course participants, KASK school of arts, Ghent. Generative modes of dialogue and storytelling form the basis to our speculative and experiential approaches to art+design. We aim to develop creative alternatives beyond the dominate systems of control and exclusion we are facing. This means facilitating the position where we do not struggle to be assimilated but instead rethink and re-conceptualize critically a future together as community.
