Message from Julia Bell, CVAN National Coordinator and NE CVAN Manager


Dear CVAN members,

After nearly eight years, I have decided to leave my post coordinating the National and North East CVAN networks. I have worked with so many great people across the country through good and bad times as we have faced some unprecedented challenges to the sector, that it has been a very difficult decision to make, however the time feels right and I will leave just prior to Christmas to pursue life in the freelance world.

The post is being split into two posts, with the North East role is advertised here and the National role in the New Year and I would welcome you bringing these roles to the attention of anyone you feel might be suitable.

I want to personally thank the National CVAN Chairs and Coordinators past and present for all the support they have provided and the work they have overseen in the last eight years, along with the CVAN regional networks who have continued to drive forward the profile of the visual arts at both regional and national level on behalf of the network, you are fantastic individuals. Finally sincere thanks to Arts Council England for their continued support and investment in the network.

Julia Bell
