CVAN has been consulting since February with our regions to determine the focus for CVAN's national strategy work over the coming three years. We began with a discussion at January's CVAN coordinators' meeting and it was agreed to tailor workshops or other activities to fit around the regions' own cycles.
Over February and March, we have been working with CVAN NE, East, NW, SE, New Art West Midlands and YVAN to take views from across their networks. This process has taken longer than expected to organise and we have therefore put back making a draft available for comment until all the regions have had a chance to participate. We now expect to have a draft available towards the middle of April.Read More
