Scattered is a new platform enabling people to experience art in striking and unexpected locations. Disregarding pretension and staid clichés of how, when and where art should be enjoyed, Scattered sees art as accessible, emergent and dynamic.
An accidental glimpse, a secret conversation, a sporadic experience.
Shhhhh, no one’s going to be looking…

And so the conversations go. And no, Scattered HQ is not immune to such predictable and oh, so British waffling about the weather and its inevitable return to crapness. But hold on a minute, what's that? Sunshine forecast for the whole week ahead? An abundance of bank holidays providing several opportunities to roast our currently purple-tinged skin? Hold on a cotton-picking, beer-in-the-sunshine-swilling moment. Is that optimism we can smell? Is that a growing sense of good things just waiting to happen?
Well, the Scattered team visited the location for the May 8th exhibition this evening and what a location it is. It could have been the early evening sun pouring through the windows that got the team's excitement going and, yes, the weather was lush and, yes, this could possibly be our summer now but things are feeling good and we can't wait for you to feel the goodness with us.
So, here's to one hell of a corker of a first exhibition and here's to Britain's first ever 6 month summer...bring on the beers!

Would you feel some regret that we didn’t try?..."
Ah, only the wise musings of Jack the Lad Swing (or JLS to any heathens out there who need the abbreviated moniker) could capture the very real mental and physical pain and torment of the loss of something that could have been but never was. Emotional blackmail it may be - it's my funeral god dammit, cry, cry, I say, you heartless swine - but never has a truer sentiment been sung. When you feel let down, nay abandoned, you really do want the bastard who hurt you to feel pain and guilt - even if it is at the cost of your untimely (but let's face it, at least in some way beneficial) death.
Now, Scattered won't necessarily be begging you for 'love CPR' if you don't commit your heart and soul to taking part in the Scattered exhibition on May 8th but can you really risk the pangs of regret that will inevitably follow any such lack of involvement?
"Would it always haunt you, baby?"

Making its entrance to the world on Sunday 8th May, the mewling and puking infant that is the Scattered inaugural event will move quickly to the rounded belly of middle age before hurtling itself into the oblivion of old age before the day is out. So, to be part of the conception and the swiftly changing acts of Scattered, get your submission in now, put the date in your diary and remember that you can only take part in Scattered once a month.
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, Scattered’s first event will end as quickly as it began…see you at the wake.
