Since 2016 CVAN EM has been inviting ideas for The Start of Something, a project that uses conversation - tackling topics relevant to the visual arts sector - to promote cross fertilisation of ideas and collaborative working, share practice and increase connectivity within the sector, propose solutions to problems and pose new ways of working. It seeks to create opportunities and encourage things to happen. If you have an idea for a conversation that addresses this aspiration, send a proposal or get in touch. They encourage a collaborative approach to proposing and delivering a conversation. Selected conversations will receive some financial support as well as promotional support. Take a look at the conversations they've already supported.
