LOOK AROUND CHALLENGE
For World Collage day, Québec Collage asked to professional and beginner collagists from all over the world to create a collage concentrated inside the space of a circle by exploring the notions of fullness and emptiness. Look Around open call was inspired by the meditative exercise of the Japanese Enso.
Nearly 122 collages were received from more than 25 countries!

To celebrate World Collage day, on May 8 2021, Quebec Collage invited professional and beginners collagists around the world to create a mostly blue collage.
TISSUE BOX CHALLENGE
During a call for submissions during the global covid-19 pandemic in April 2020, we proposed a group challenge: to create a collage by integrating the top of a tissue paper box.
We are proud to have received over 100 submissions.
Thank you to those who made this call a success! We would like to follow up on this project, possibly publishing a fanzine or an exhibition, as soon as the opportunity allows.
