I’m very much looking forward to speaking at this Symposium, organised to mark the end of ArtSway’s fantastic two-year Artist Associates programme.
Taking place on 16th July at The Arts University College at Bournemouth, the event focuses on the practice of supporting artists within the contemporary visual arts beyond the traditional curatorial, exhibition and commissioning role of the public sector.
Should this duplicate or complement, for instance, commercial representation? Should this be limited in reach or accessible? What is the impact on audiences and organisations?
As publicly funded arts organisations begin to develop these new models and initiatives for ongoing support, this one-day symposium presents an introduction to existing programmes and models, modes of representation and questions how long-term support of artists can be increased. A series of afternoon workshops will offer a range of scenarios to test and discuss options.
Confirmed Speakers are:
Simon Faithfull, Artist and ArtSway Associate
Dany Louise, Strategic Facilitator and Writer
Donna Lynas, Director, Wysing Arts Centre
Dida Tait, Head of Membership & Market Development, Contemporary Art Society.
Chaired by Mark Segal, Director, ArtSway.
