AHRC creative economy engagement fellowship: ‘it takes a region to raise an artist’

This Fellowship (to October 2019) is to support a major new development programme being devised by the Contemporary Visual Arts Network East Midlands (CVAN EM). The project It Takes a Region to Raise an Artist: Researching and Developing the East Midlands Visual Arts Economy will focus on building supportive infrastructures for commercial visual arts activity in the region.

Through mapping, in-depth qualitative research and survey work, the project will investigate how to create integrated, region-wide activities that can support emerging and established artists, provide new work and development opportunities, and showcase the region as place where artistic careers can be both viable and successful.
