What do Ellie Breeze and Lizz Brady have in common?
On leaving Cambridge School of Art, Ellie Breeze co-founded the Motion Sickness art collective as a means of staying connected, and also to create opportunities to show work and to make things happen in her own locality.
Lizz Brady also formed her own collective, Broken Grey Wires, to provide a support network for her projects about positive mental health. She has since gone on to curate exhibitions featuring work by both emerging artists and also established names such as Pipilotti Rist, Gillian Wearing, Martin Creed and David Shrigley.
It was great to hear their stories about making art happen and the benefits that their approach can bring.
