We thrive on a collective input from everyone across the visual arts sector in the South West and beyond.

Support Us

We encourage visual arts professionals to work with our Director and Steering Group to help ensure that the network of organisations and independent practitioners meets its full potential. Our regular regional cluster meetings extend an open invitation so that everyone operating in the visual arts sector can have their voices heard. Details on how to attend these cluster meetings are shared in our monthly newsletter and social channels.

You can also support VASW and our sector programme by following us on our social media channels and by engaging with content from featured artists, spaces and events. By growing our online community, we can reach new audiences and increase awareness for visual arts projects across the South West.
