CVAN Regional Strategy Consultation

http://www.cvan.art/news/2018/2/21/cvan-regional-strategy-consultation

The contemporary visual arts sector is facing a number of key challenges and now, more than ever, we need to work together to build a vibrant future for the sector. The Contemporary Visual Arts Network (CVAN) is working with our regional networks (including VASW) for greater cohesion and a more strategic engagement with these challenges. CVAN want to make sure their national strategic plan is as responsive and effective as possible and so they are currently consulting the regional networks.

There are a lot of consultations out there at the moment, and CVAN don’t want this to be a chore, so they are asking people just to sketch their answers to three open questions:

We will also be asking for ideas, concerns, and inspirations from everyone in and around our CVAN regional networks via a hashtag #CVANFutureSW and at events around the country. Please also add #VASW.

We don’t want this to be a chore so we’re asking people at CVAN events just to sketch their answers to three open questions:

1. What is the most exceptional value the visual arts can offer society?

2. If you could change or do one thing to improve support for artists, what would that be?

3. What's the biggest challenge? In terms of support for artists, what isn't working?

 

CVAN will compile these inspirations from across the regions into their national strategic planning which will be published shortly after Easter 2018.They will be blogging regularly about their progress in developing the strategy and inviting commentary. Help them to hear from and meet as many of the people who make up CVAN's networks as possible.
