Mission Statement

The Absurd Collective is a collective of young artists from Edmonton, Alberta. We create and promote a wide variety of content from Punk and Hip-Hop, to graphic design, to photography, to fashion, to writing. Our approach to everything is explicitly community oriented, DIY, and anti-industry, and that’s about the only qualifying factor that we apply to what we do.

We organize shows in Edmonton on a regular basis, and promote local art in the city to the best of our abilities. The collective has been the recipient of two grants from the Young Edmonton Grants program, and works with local charities, galleries, and venues on a regular basis.
