Yorkshire & Humber Visual Arts Network is hosting a series of curated conversations with visual artists, makers and professionals on the current state of the visual arts across the region.

Nourish is a YVAN artist consultation project, now in its fourth year, to hear directly from artists and arts organisations in the region. Your presence builds a stronger more resilient visual arts network, is used to map the sector and build opportunities to engage non-arts partners.  Previous agendas focused on Artists' Livelihoods, Place, Gentrification and the Artist Studio.

Nourish 2019 is supported by Arts Council England and is a partnership between Yorkshire & Humber Visual Arts NetworkThe Art HouseGreat Place Wentworth & ElsecarWykeland GroupGreat Place: Lakes and Dales and Sheffield Hallam University.
