East Midlands Visual Arts Network update

New Art Exchange, Nottingham

Today's meeting of the East Midlands Visual Arts Network steering group was hosted by New Art Exchange in Nottingham.

The meeting was an opportunity for all members of the group to meet with Rebecca Lee, the consultant recently appointed by the group to design and deliver an inclusive and far reaching consultation for the East Midlands' visual arts constituency.

Starting with a region-wide conference in March, and then a series of more locally focussed conversations, the consultation aims to test the EMVAN steering group's initial thinking about what is needed to achieve a stronger visual arts in the region; foster support for and committment to collective actions; and to encourage a more diverse group membership, in terms of geography, culture, and perspective.

Following agreement of the steering group EMVAN coordinator, Yasmin Canvin is working with Simon Zimmerman to develop a website where further information can be posted, and opinion can be shared throughout the consultation. Once this space is developed we will post the domain name here.
