CVAN EM has been awarded funding from Art Fund’s Reimagine programme to help deliver an Art Technician Training Programme for the East Midlands, in partnership with ArtTechSpace and supported by organisations across the region. Through the project we continue to provide training opportunities and moments to platform the region’s skilled art technician workforce.

We hope you can join us for the launch of CVAN EM’s Arts Worker Directory on Wednesday 19 July. The Arts Worker Directory is an ever growing resource of independents, freelancers and small businesses working within the arts across the East Midlands.

This event is also an opportunity for art technicians or freelance arts workers to connect with each other and creative professionals working within organisations in the East Midlands.
