Great Collage Swap
At Sunday’s Daily Collage Congress, we will wrap up Collage Tanzkarte, a game being played throughout the festival and say goodbye with the Great Collage Swap. Part show-and-tell and part collage exchange, those who attended the festival are invited to contribute a collage and receive one in return. To participate, artists should deliver a collage to the Kolaj Fest Information Table before 10:15AM on Sunday and receive a number. During the meeting, numbers will be drawn and collages will be distributed.
