ONOMATO exhibits, presents, screens and performs work outside of habitual venues, locations and contexts - our true horizon is to pursue collaboration as a politically expressive, temporal event taking the form of a programme of events; a line of research; a conversation; a curatorial transmission; a publication; a residency or unification.  

Our work can take the form of a programme of events, a line of research, a conversation with our neighbours, a curated exhibition, a publication or a residency. Running through our activities is a commitment to artists working with sound, music, image, performance, collaboration and alternative cultures.

The ONOMATO Collective is curated by Sam Francis, Rhiannon Jones and Ben Owen.
