make art in a whole bunch of different ways.

We are making it up & making art.

In 2019 we formed as an arts collective to make stuff that we think is cool. 

A rented living room. Jess sips on her 4th coffee of the day and feels no effect whilst flicking through listings for 8 more Shakespeare adaptations in parks while Anna throws stuff at a TV screen filled with white men.

 

Anna     Why won’t anyone pay me to make the work I want to make?

 

Jess      I’ll pay you.

 

Anna     You don’t have any money.

 

Jess      Yet. If I could get paid to make the work I want to make, which I’m pretty sure is 99.9% the same as the work you want to make, then I could pay you. And me.

 

Anna      And we could make the work we want to make.

Jess      What if -

 

Anna     We started…

 

J & A     A thing?!?

 

MAGNA is born.

 

Anna     What’s the work you want to make in that 0.1% that’s different from the work I want to make?

 

Jess     Dog adverts.


Anna     Oh yeah, yer on yer own there, mate.
