The Authentic Artist Collective has grown into a network for those who have participated in an Authentic Artist Workshop.
The AAC has a private Facebook group (separate from the general Authentic Artist Collective page) where people post links, photographs, ask questions, discuss artistic issues etc. This is a great resource and well used by the community.
There are also Authentic Artist Asylums, where 'AA's come to share current work or practices and connect with the community as sharers or witnesses.
Within the wider Collective, much artistic collaboration has occurred and continues to occur. The Collective has members in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the USA, France, Denmark, Australia, Cananda and Finland.
