CVAN were invited as a national visual arts network to an ACE national stakeholder briefing meeting on Wednesday 27th May in advance of ACE Chief Executive Darren Henley's speech in Hull last Thursday. His speech can be found here.

CVAN welcomes ACE's focus between 2015 - 2018 on building cultural capacity and production outside of London through G4A investment but also support our London colleagues in advocating the need for continued sustained investment in our capital city. The £35m investment into the new ACE Ambition for Excellence fund is an exciting opportunity for our members and the visual arts sector at large to develop ambition programmes of activity.
