.ZIP Collective is a non-profit artist-run association in Bergen established in 2018 by 6 Master graduates from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Bergen. The goal was to create a safe workspace for newly established artists as well as being a gallery space open for the public.

Since 2018 the studio members have developed from consisting mainly of visual artists to consisting of artists from several fields such as fine art, stage design, dance, illustration and photo – making today’s .Zip Collective a unique multidisciplinary studio.

In addition to being a work space for the members on a daily basis .Zip Collective is also a space for exhibitions, workshops, performances, collaborations and other events open to the public.

The space is located in an earlier kindergarten at Støletorget close to Bergen city centre. It houses shared studio spaces, a common space with a kitchen, and a project room/gallery for exhibitions and experimentations.
