Text (Accepted Version)
This paper examines the complexity of the collaborative process and how various factors, but particularly interactions between individuals, can affect the quality of the outcome for those concerned. This perspective will be described from the perceptions of four groups of artists brought together for a major exhibition, in addition to that of the curator. Significant factors which can nurture and sustain collaboration will be discussed, in addition to examining the importance of leadership, which seems to be antithetical to this process. In addition, the necessity of establishing prior relationships before engaging in collaboration will be examined, including suggestions as to how this can be achieved. This knowledge is relevant to many fields, including educational settings in which collaborative processes are increasingly encouraged through collegial interactions. However, successful and effective engagement in the collaborative process requires a comprehensive understanding of the factors involved so that the benefits for all can be maximised.
