Speed date the collection

Try speed dating with a difference!
Thursday 13th December 5.45pm for a 6pm start.

Speed date the collection brings you closer to the council's collection of artists' books in a fun, dynamic and fascinating way.

Our bi-monthly informal Speed Date the Collection night, is an opportunity for the community to ‘meet’ a wide selection of artists’ books. In a social context participants can become familiar with the rich resource of artists’ books held in the Mackay Regional Council Art Collection. How it works: Six artists’ books, six staff or volunteers and ten minutes to experience an initial spark of interest, attraction and connection to an artwork - or not as the case may be! Following standard speed dating rules participants rotate to meet each artists’ book over a series of short "dates" lasting around ten minutes. Participants have one-on-one ‘conversations’ for a limited time with the trained presenter and then move on when requested to the next artists’ book. Just like building any relationship the aim is to strengthen and deepen the community’s connection with the MRC Art Collection. For those who want to spend more time together with the artwork a booking can be made for the Tate Adams Reading Pod at a later date.

Free to attend, bookings essential.
