A gallery room with colourful walls with painted and cut out shapes. A large screen shows a film of a young child peering through a cut out hole in a biscuit box
Several individuals seated beneath a white tent, engaged in drawing, colouring and stencilling. There are handmade signs in the background that say 'Create', 'your' and 'future'.

How it works

What is the Directory for?
VASW’s Directory, What’s On and Opportunities listings is a platform to share and showcase contemporary visual arts activity and organisations in the South West of England.

What you can share:

- Organisation profiles
- Visual arts events taking place in the South West
- Visual arts jobs and opportunities

We validate all profiles manually - this may take a few days. If your submission is not relevant to contemporary visual arts audiences, artists and artworkers, it will not be accepted.


If you are a South West based visual arts organisation, group or initiative whose programmes extend beyond their members' individual practices, you will be eligible for our Art Map and Directory listing. We do not list individual artists, artist collaborations or commercial enterprises; however, you can share events, jobs and opportunities with the VASW network.

If you are working on behalf of an organisation, please sign up as an organisation, not an individual. This helps to ensure your event is linked to the organisation's activity.

Please see our FAQ's for further info.
