CVAN EM's Document project receives critical coverage

CVAN EM has commissioned a piece of critical writing about its Document project, that follows six artists in the East Midlands to reflect on their experience as practising artists, at this time, in their voices. 

Artist and writer Tom Hackett, has in turn reflected on the project; how it came about, what it seeks to achieve, the six artists, and critically, its taking place in the East Midlands.

Read his piece on a-n The Artist's Information Company's website
