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.

) and spends most of her time with dogs and cats, but she also draws pictures, mostly of dogs and cats. She imagines that if Artclash did not exist, she would probably never do anything cool.

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. morgancahn.com
