About Us

The AntiMA was founded in 2019 by artist, writer and curator Grace Madeleine Slater with the aim to target loneliness within the arts and explore arts education free from institutional restraints and “box ticking” modules. Slater was also inspired to start The AntiMA due to the apparent lack of opportunities for artists in Brighton.

Although Brighton is a popular city for creatives and plays host to a range of festivals and fringes, there seemed to be a short supply of open calls, free art classes and groups, even exhibitions at local art galleries and museums.
