Many thanks to all our speakers and participants. We are now planning a new collage / book event at the London Centre for Book Arts on Friday 30th July 2021. Please email Sarah.Bodman@uwe.ac.uk if you would like to be on the list to receive more information nearer the time.

In the run up to the colloquium we also posted the LCBA Collage Challenge – Wish I Was Where… as part of our CFPR Print and Book Festival.

We invited the public to participate by making a collage postcard of somewhere they would like to be on their summer holiday (real or imagined) and send it to a friend in the mail and/or online. You can see some of the results (on Instagram/Twitter), if you search using the hashtag #wishiwaswhere, do feel free to join in too.
