Together We Will: New Recommendations for Best Practice

Visu­al Arts South West invites you to join the online launch of an action plan for achiev­ing long-term sys­temic change in the visu­al arts.

Visual Arts South West invites art professionals, organisations and audiences to join the online launch of a sector-led action plan for achieving long-term systemic change in the visual arts.

In Spring 2021, as part of the sector support programme Together We Will, VASW called for art professionals working in South West England to develop new recommendations for best practice to increase equal access, and to foster inclusive working cultures in our sector. Four advisory groups – Black and non-Black Artworkers of Colour, Disabled and Neurodivergent Artworkers, LGBTQIA+ Artworkers and Young Artworkers – gathered over a two-month period to collectively outline intersectional approaches to transforming our professional field. The outcomes are now shared as new best practice guidelines for the visual arts, along with plans for a regional pledge scheme which invites organisations of all scales to implement these recommendations in their work.

For this event, VASW brings together an array of voices who have supported and participated in the Together We Will programme, to address the importance of dismantling structural inequality with tangible effects for both artists and organisations. Whilst openly acknowledging the complexities and challenges that will inevitably accompany this work, the event is also an opportunity to celebrate the generous and critical insights of all who have contributed to the new roadmap for a better visual arts sector.
