You can filter by county and ensure you don’t miss exhibitions and activity taking place on your doorstep, such as Earthling, open until Saturday 31 July at  mpndprojects in Loughborough!

The 2021 Members’ show surrounds the theme of world-building and features painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, textile, and installation.

The exhibition showcases a broad mix of styles, but all reflect the theme of world-building: the process of imagining new fictional worlds, where entire imagined universes are constructed with specific rules and processes. This theme of world-building was chosen to recognise the importance of possibilities after a year of limitations, to provoke new ways of imagining and to celebrate our gallery space as a place of potential.

The exhibition features work by: Ama Dogbe, Amber Jesson, David John Scarborough, James Milner, Kate Robotham, Magda Vaughan, Molly Stocks, Phoebe Mae Ellis, Selene States and Tayler Fisher.

Posted withregram • cvanetwork The UK government have approved a 50% funding cut for arts and design courses. This is a huge blow to the creative sector.

Statement from paula.orrell.7 - CVAN director: 

'What it means for the arts sector is that the government is devaluing a critical industry. The decision is economical and short sighted, based on Treasury pressure on student loans. The creative industries will lose talent as courses will be reduced nationally, making courses a lot more competitive - so that hidden talent - people who are marginalised - will be overlooked.

Artists and the creative sector at large, contribute to society in so many different ways and, most importantly, are part of the cultural, mental and social well-being of the nation.

This decision is so short-sighted if you consider the Government’s purported commitment to the arts. Boris was the first Prime Minister in a long time to talk about our value when he became the PM. What is his position now? They need to find an economic solution to empower the future education choices of the next generation rather than continuing to eradicate arts throughout the education system, which has systematically happened from primary now to HE.”
