On Thursday we will have our decisive meeting with ArtQuest about future collaborations and partnerships. “Artquest provides critical engagement and practical support to London’s visual artists and craftspeople, working with practitioners in London throughout their careers.”
Following detailed discussions about partnering, VAI and Artquest are now investigating how to take the wealth of information contained within both organisations to create a cross pollinated information source, supported by a professional development programme that can provide artists with the skills and confidence that they need to survive in the present economic climate. This project is part of VAI’s 2011 programme which is addressing the widening of support structures so that professional visual artists will feel less isolated.
More about the project later. Check our twitter account for updates on the meeting.
