Speed date the collection

Our informal Speed date the Collection event is an opportunity for the community to ‘meet’ artists’ books from the Collection in an enjoyable way. Participants will become familiar with artists’ books held in the Mackay Regional Council Art Collection in a social, interactive context.

How it works: Six artists’ books, six 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’. Participants have one-on-one interactions with the help of a trained presenter, then move on 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 with the artwork, a booking can be made for the Tate Adams Reading Pod at a later date.
