Beccy McCray explores playful, socially engaged art and design using whatever media necessary to create imaginative acts of resistance and more human moments in the world. Seeking to break down boundaries between art, activism and everyday life, Beccy ultimately aims to spread joy and inspire positive change at grass roots level, using creativity to raise awareness of environmental issues and social ideals.
Beccy's Crafternoon Tea Club is a collective which explores participatory and community art, combined with DIY craft-based tradition that can take any form; from games, happenings and installation, to collage, baking, parties and painting - or just being nice to people. The project acts as both curator and collaborator; creating frameworks within which unexpected situations can occur. It aims to blur the line between artist and audience, bringing people together, using collective powers for the greater good, and having fun while they do it!
Beccy's work has been commissioned by organisations such as The Barbican, the Jerwood Gallery, Turner Contemporary, The Olympic Park Legacy Company, The National Theatre, Home Live Art, Create London, ONCA Centre for Arts and Ecology and the Women's Institute.
