Collective East is an independent project promoting the work of artists and cultural practitioners from the Central and Eastern European region. Founded by independent curator & writer Borbala Komjathy (b.1993, Budapest, Hungary), and artist Anya Kashina (b. 1993, Yaroslavl, Russia) Collective East 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.
