About us

Collision Art Collective

Collision Art Collective started as a performance group founded by Jenni Österlund and Jonathan Bäckström in 2018. The goal at the time was to combine their practises: visual arts and music in performances and events. In 2020 the group grew as artist Michele Ucceddu and graphic designer Sara Östman joined to produce the first ever Collision Festival in Jakobstad, Finland.

The collective wants to build a platform for contemporary arts and music where people can meet and create together. Our goal is to build a free community for different kinds of art where we push each other forward creatively.

Our long term goal is to create an annual festival that can grow and involve more creative people every year. We also want to work on our international exchange together with our partner company Supranu records in Sardinia (ITA). We chose the name “collision” to represent the collide we want to create between music and arts.

We are open to collaborations, ideas and discussions. Don’t hesitate to contact us!
