Collective East is an independent project promoting the work of artists and cultural practitioners from the Central and Eastern European region. Founded by artist Anya Kashina (b.1993, Yaroslavl, Russia) and independent curator & writer Borbala Komjathy (b.1993, Budapest, Hungary), C.E. was born out of a desire for more connection, collaboration and support between creatives of Central and Eastern European background based in the U.K.

The United Kingdom is home to a large population of Eastern European residents, yet there are few outlets to support artists from our geographical region. Our aim is to provide a platform and facilitate dialogues between those artists and their peers and institutions, both in the U.K. and abroad. Post - Brexit, it is even more important to strengthen our already established relationships and networks, and to promote our communities.
