CVAN EM presents its project Document for an audience in Leicester.






In 2016 six artists, living and working in the East Midlands, were selected to take part in Document, a project that set out to tell their story, in their voice. Since then the Contemporary Visual Arts Network East Midlands (CVAN EM) has worked with those artists as they have reflected on their practice and captured their experiences.
CVAN EM is delighted to bring Document to Leicester. At this event we will screen Six Artist Stories a series of short films commissioned for the project, by Leicester-based award winning filmmaker Bill Newsinger, to capture the experiences of the project artists.
There will also be the opportunity to hear the artists – Andrew Bracey, Geoff Litherland, Jessica Harby, Kajal Nisha Patel, Tim Shore and Tracey Kershaw – in conversation with other individuals involved in the project.
This event is free to attend but please book a place. Refreshments will be served.
Document is supported by CAMEo and the University of Leicester and Arts Council England.
