CollaborArt is an art initiative borne of the need for Alex to have some kind of work role. It’s not so much that he has a great interest in art; it’s more that this was something he could contribute to that would provide lots of avenues for him to meet people and to get out and about doing things like supplying cards, sending invoices, banking cheques and buying supplies.
Alex loves the sound of the woodwork machines used to make his wooden stamps. He is then supported to use the stamps with paint and the “CollaborArtists” help by making the stamps into cards and packaging them for sale. He is also supported in the making of spray paintings. The cards are available at several outlets in town and he sells the paintings at market stalls.
