The Artclash Collective is a Philadelphia-based group of artists who organize art projects and shows that aim to be fun, inclusive and participatory. With each project/show, we seek to create a welcoming forum for people to share their art and form a community. Our shows are always free, non-juried and all ages. We hope they help people embrace their creativity and serve as an inspiration for those who attend. We hope we can inspire you to make art!
Fun-a-Day shows not organized by the Artclash Collective or the Artclash Collective WEST are independently run, inspired by our example.

Sarah Golomb studied anthropology at Temple University, but has always kept her hands wet with creativity (sewing experiments…street furniture salvaging). She experienced Fun-A-Day Philly as an audience member- loved it and was inspired. She moved to Portland and couldn't imagine this city without it, and she needed to participate this time!

I want to engage people and inspire them. I want everyone to feel that they are artists, and to put artistic thought into the places they spend their lives in. www.morgancahn.com
