On Being An Artist

  • Phoenix Cinema and Art Centre 4 Midland Street Leicester, LE1 1TG United Kingdom (map)

In 2016 six artists, living and working in the East Midlands, were selected to take part in Document, a project that set out to tell their story, in their voice. Since then the Contemporary Visual Arts Network East Midlands (CVAN EM) has worked with those artists as they have reflected on their practice and captured their experiences.

CVAN EM is delighted to bring Document to Leicester. At this event we will screen Six Artist Stories a series of short films commissioned for the project, by Leicester-based award winning filmmaker Bill Newsinger, to capture the experiences of the project artists.

There will also be the opportunity to hear the artists - Andrew Bracey, Geoff Litherland, Jessica Harby, Kajal Nisha Patel, Tim Shore and Tracey Kershaw - in conversation with other individuals involved in the project.


Document is supported by CAMEo and the University of Leicester and Arts Council England.
