Collective Voice 1 : Publishing for the 21st Century

Michael Hall, Alison Johnson

Research output: Other contribution


The project set out to explore narrative: fiction and non-fiction, linear and non-linear, to utilise publishing and production as a communication tool, to sharpen views of participants and provide a point of focus for inter-disciplinary professional and research activity. A newspaper inviting submissions for inclusion in the next issue was produced. This publication was carefully designed as a conceptual piece in order to leave room for the reader to think.

Bibliographical note

As well as being distributed via several London museums and bookshops. Copies were deposited at art colleges and galleries and mailed out to selected individuals. 1,000 papers were printed in Estonia and shipped to Teesside. Several hundred more remained in Estonia and were distributed via the Estonian Art Academy and National Art Museum.

The project caught the imagination of ‘Streets Ahead’ who funded a series of creative publishing masterclasses in 2003. Gifted and able students from the region worked with graphic art and design practitioners and educators, as part of a design team to realise a unique creative publication defined by the participants.

In addition Collective Voice was presented at the CADE Conference ’03 in Hull. The theme of the paper was one of collaboration and the belief that collective rather than individual approach represented the best way forward for artists working with new media
