What is World Collage Day?

Collage Rocks! We love collage so much, six years ago we created a magazine dedicated to contemporary collage.

Collage connects our eyes, our minds, and the muscles in our hands. Collage is accessible and democratic. All you need is some paper, some glue, and a pair of scissors. Collage gets us thinking differently. In the past 100 years, the medium has played a vital role in the advancement of art. Enthusiastic groups of artists come together to make collage regularly. Collage builds communities. Collage makes beautiful contemporary art.

"Part of what makes collage unique in the art world today is the enthusiastic, dedicated, friendly group of people who come together as a community. In the past six years of publishing Kolaj, we have seen countless collaborations, group exhibitions, meet-ups, and events," writes Ric Kasini Kadour in Kolaj #22. "On a regular basis we witness dialogue and a spirit of cooperation and care for one another. Sometimes the art world can be cold, competitive, money-driven, and frankly inhumane. But in this corner of it where artists hang out and make and share collage, we often find the opposite. We think that is awesome and we think the rest of the world should know about it."

To celebrate collage, Kolaj Magazine declared Saturday, May 12, 2018 World Collage Day.

We invite artists, art centres, museums, galleries, schools, and communities to celebrate the day by hosting events that bring communities together. Ideas include collage making meet-ups, docent-led tours of collage in a museum or gallery, activities for kids, slideshows or talks that appreciate collage's role in contemporary art & art history, exhibitions of collage, and more. We invite people to come together around collage in their own communities and to connect to the world digitally using the hashtag #WorldCollageDay.
