New Art West Midlands are delighted to once again offer artists and curators living in the West Midlands region the opportunity to receive a studio visit* from an arts professional. This is an opportunity to discuss your work and to seek valuable feedback and practical advice on either artistic or curatorial practice.
Working with organisations, photographers, community groups, academics and curators from across the country, the Open Eye Gallery are building a new network to discuss and accelerate the practice of socially engaged photography. In the spirit of social practice, the network will be shaped collaboratively by its users, beginning with a quick survey to gauge how the network can be as useful as it can be. We would appreciate it if anyone interested in joining could take some time to fill it in. The network is open — join below by signing up to the mailing list.Read More
