Fineshade Wood, Fineshade, Corby NN17 3BB, UK

CVAN EM presents its project Document in the unique setting of Fineshade Wood near Corby.






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 and Fermynwoods Contemporary Art are delighted to bring Document to the unique setting of Fineshade Wood nr Corby. At this event we will screen Six Artist Stories a series of short films commissioned for the project to capture the experiences of the artists. There will also be the opportunity to hear from the artists – Andrew Bracey, Geoff Litherland, Jessica Harby, Kajal Nisha Patel, Tim Shore and Tracey Kershaw.
The 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.
