Holly McCulloch


First up for Collective's New Work Scotland Programme 2007 (NWSP) is Glasgow School of Art graduate, Holly McCulloch. NWSP lies at the heart of Collective's Professional Development Programme and creates a dedicated three month period for the support and development of new artists in Scotland through exhibiting, writing and event opportunities.
