Art making… within a Spare Tyre activity is open, it’s experimental, it’s unfinished, it’s collaborative, and it’s shared. This environment encourages the confidence to try something out, and if you have the confidence to try something out, and explore something with others, that automatically means that you’re communicating with others. I really admire the risks that Spare Tyre take… but they don't take... when I say risks, as in ‘let’s see what happens, let’s explore this, let’s follow this because actually this is working better than that', rather than just doggedly keeping at one thing and not really learning from it. It's, it’s not ego-led. It’s not brand led. It’s actually wanting to stay viable… and it’s wanting to have meaning. Genuinely.
