Open Jar Collective call for new members

We are seeking new members to join the collective for our next project ‘Broth Mix’, which is part of the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art supported programme.

Open Jar will be resident in the Kinning Park Complex for the two weeks of the Glasgow International Festival of Art, creating ‘Broth Mix’, a space for conversations and action with both the local community and the wider creative community in Glasgow and the festival audience, and curating a series of events that bring people together through the common connection of food.

Open Jar is a collective of socially engaged artists and designers who use food as a lens through which to view the world. The group produce collaborative art work, host communal meals and stage unique pop-up events that stimulate and inspire new ways of thinking about our food culture, trade, economics, and the environment. Open Jar aim to contribute to the growing debate about how we can develop a more equitable and sustainable food system in Scotland. Find out more about us at

Skills that would be great to add to the team are graphic design, web design, construction and film-making. Membership is open to all creative disciplines and you can be an associate member, joining us on an ad hoc basis for individual projects or a full member, taking part in the running of the collective.

If you think your interests and skills fit our objectives and you are passionate about food and want to find out more contact us for details on applying at:

Open Jar Collective members are currently Clem Sandison, Alex Wilde, Hannah Brackston, Daniele Sambo and Emily Chappell.
