Jazz Swali stated "Collaboration is something that we are always trying to be conscious of when working with our members and bringing everyone’s voices to the table. This year we are curating 52 artworks: many being shown for the first time. It’s a brilliant moment for the artists to share what they have been developing over the last 12-months of their practice."
