Contemporary Visual Art Network East Midlands




CVAN EM is part of the national Contemporary Visual Arts Network established to support and celebrate the visual arts sector in the region. It is concerned with activity in all parts of the region: Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland. Its community of interest is made up of individuals, organisations, collectives and projects producing, presenting visual arts in the region, in all its forms.

CVAN EM aims to encourage collaboration within, raise the profile and celebrate the achievements of the sector in the East Midlands. We are currently delivering a series of projects designed for individuals, organisations and collectives that offer support, networking, collaboration and profiling opportunties. 

Our aims are to:

• engage artists and organisations in tackling common issues resulting in new ways of working and more informed decision making
• support collaborative working across the region leading to new opportunities, new experiences and new networks
• celebrate and promote contemporary arts in the region, from making to presenting.
