Working together for creativity and inclusion

The Armchair Artists Collective

Members :

Sandra Rennie, Meg Hughes,  Angel Kershaw, Suzanne Jackson, Gerard Bell-fife

The Armchair Artists’ Collective was created in 2020, after artist Sand Rennie started a Facebook group, to enable people to share their art work. The Armchair Painting Facebook Group currently has 34 members, who mostly live in the North of England.

5 of the artists from this Facebook group decided to create a collective, to work on projects and encourage and inspire each other to increase their output and place their work before the public.

In 2020 The Armchair Artists’ Collective (AAC) applied to Bradford Council for a grant from their Bradford 2025 fund, to enable them to make a short film.  The Laughing Salmon of Bradford

The artists painted the backgrounds and characters, wrote the script, produced, directed, and played all the voiced parts to create a film that had it’s premiere at the Cubbie Broccoli Theatre in Bradford on 17th July 2021
