CVAN EM is working with arttechspace to survey the need for an Art Technician training programme for early-career / aspiring and established technicians in the East Midlands to address the skills shortage in the wider area. 

ArtTechSpace has created a short ‘survey of need’ to ask technicians in the region to establish where they feel skill gaps are and how this project might best benefit them. Survey link in bio, please complete and share!

The survey will be live until 18 July and we would really appreciate your time in completing it. In July CVAN EM and ArtTechSpace will share a further report on the results of the survey and an outline for recommendations including next steps.

Please send any questions or requests for the form in a different format to info@cvaneastmidlands.co.uk.

In 2021/22 CVAN East Midlands participated in a period of consultation and led activity aimed at positively impacting on public programmes and commissioning in the East Midlands. Last month we hosted a public forum, an opportunity to engage organisations, artists and arts workers with project activity and provide a platform to test and discuss ideas.

We were joined by Dr. Vishalakshi Roy, Director of research-led strategic consultancy earthen_lamp, and East Mids-based creators of the 'Combining Accessibility & Creativity Toolkit' Jo Tolley (i.jo.tolley) and Benjamin Rostance (benart86). You can watch a subtitled recording of the event on our website & YouTube, 🔗🔗🔗 in bio.
