This year for ArtLicks weekend, Croydon Arts Store brings together eight grassroots projects under one roof to explore themes of collaboration, friendship, support, exchange and care.

Open Call is a microcosmic art exchange program, advice centre, exhibition & archive. Over the weekend we intend to inhabit the space as a working office hub through which the public can interact with Open School East associates. Open Call aims to nurture a culture of care & exchange in an art market where the personal brand is thriving and aims to challenge pre-existing structures of the art-world- to abolish hierarchies, by allowing every submission to be shown and discussed. There will be free tea and coffee for visitors as well as a coffee morning on Sunday 7th.
