Who Are We?
A collective of likeminded people building a platform for artists to create, share and collaborate across all areas of culture. Founded in Cork, Garden collective is now made up of a diverse group of people based in Lisbon, where we blend roots with shoots and do cool stuff.
Who Are You?
Whether you’ve been a professional guitarist for the past three decades, or you make shadow puppets in your bedroom, we want to hear from you! We’re always on the lookout for creative people to work with, so get in touch and let’s see if we can grow something beautiful.
What We Do.
The core of Garden Collective has always been live events. Gathering the weird and wonderful together for nights (and days) of poetry, art, music, film, theatre, puppetry, and pretty much anything else we come across. Check out our previous events and what we've got planned for the future.
Behind the Scenes
As Garden Collective, we’ve collaborated with hundreds of artists, and as events and interest grew, we thought it would be nice to give people a peek ‘behind the scenes’, so to speak. We therefore set out to interview the artists we work with, getting a little insight into what makes them tick.
As well as organising events, we also run numerous creative projects, often involving the artists that perform at Garden shows. This includes various video series as well as visual arts, music and production, zine publication, and much more. Take a butcher’s at some of the bits we’re working on.
