Tendency Towards seeks to promote and support emerging talent within contemporary arts practices, carving out a space for experimental approaches to arts production within the city’s creative ecology. Alongside a programme of exhibitions and events, the committee actively explores collaborative modes of production as a group, engaging with other projects and initiatives within the city and beyond to address civic and labor issues. These methods of collaborative production, and thinking of an artist-run programme as a civic meeting point, are currently being explored by Tendency Towards in a series of future projects.
The initiative was founded in 2016 by six Gray’s School of Art students: Yvette Bathgate, Jessica Barrie, Paula Buškevica, Donald Butler, Mary Gordon and Jake Shepherd.
