Make. Practice. Perfect

Friday 24 March 2017, 10am-5pm.    
The Collection Lincoln and Usher Gallery, Lincoln   
£10.75/£7.75. Tickets can be booked here.

CVAN East Midland's 2017 Annual Event Make.Practice.Perfect will consider how we make art and maintain an art practice, where we turn for help in the process and practice of making art, if we are looking in the right places and whether we need look at all.

Aimed at artists, students and academics, as well a non-practising public, this day-long event discusses how, where and why we produce art works today, what are the barriers to production and how we may overcome them through our working methods and accessing relevant networks and resources.

Contributors will include:

Conohar Scott – lecturer in photographic theory and a practicing artist at the School of Media & Film, University of Lincoln

Joanne Lee – photographer, writer, researcher and publisher and Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at Sheffield Hallam University

Mark Smith – Executive Director, Axisweb

Roma Piotrowska – Exhibitions Manager, Ikon Gallery

CVAN EM Document artists (Andrew Bracey, Geoff Litherland, Jessica Harby, Kajal Nisha Patel, Tim Shore, Tracey Kershaw)

CVAN EM's Annual Events are designed for and to inspire an open and diverse audience of those working in the sector as well as non-arts professionals. Featuring keynote speeches, discursive breakouts, informal networking and member contributions, these events allow us collectively to explore ideas relevant to the sector, capitalise on the knowledge, skills and assets of the network and expand its terms of reference and aspiration.
