We are currently fundraising for new activity under the title of It Takes a Region To Raise An Artist. The activity is being informed by research into the East Midlands visual arts ecology, that we commissioned in partnership with CAMEo, at the University of Leicester. It will see us continue to work collaboratively, with artists and organisations, to create opportunities and communities and to celebrate visual practice arts in the region, from making to presenting.

Over the next couple of months we’ll hold a series of events across the region, to share the research findings and recommendations. Keep an eye on the website for more details, or sign up for our newsletter.

Find out about our 2015-18 programme.

As we work on our forward programme, we continue to document contemporary visual arts practice in the East Midlands through illustrated interviews with artists and curators living and working here. Read their responses:
