Bristol Visual Arts Review - Get Involved Now!

Are you a visual artist, curator, or producer working in Bristol? Perhaps you’re someone who enjoys going to visual arts exhibitions and events in Bristol on a regular basis, or you’re thinking about exploring the visual arts for the first time.

If so, we want to hear from you.

In 2018-22 we’re going to invest up to £3.34m in Bristol’s visual arts sector with the aim of achieving sustainable growth. This is an unprecedented opportunity to transform the future of visual arts in Bristol. But what could this look like?

Our Review Leaders, James Lingwood and Godfrey Worsdale, are helping us to answer some key questions, but we need your help too:
 
- What does a programme of internationally significant visual arts activity in Bristol look like?
 
- How should we support the development of artists based in the greater Bristol region at all career stages?
 
- How can we maximise audiences for the visual arts in Bristol?
 
- How can we support the development of partnerships & collaborative working to strengthen Bristol’s visual arts sector?

If you have answers or thoughts on any or all of these questions, please email them to: ceri.johnson@artscouncil.org.uk before the end of November 2017.

The answers you provide will be used by our Review Leaders to inform a set of options for how to fund the visual arts in Bristol in 2018-22. These options will be further developed in early 2018 with the expectation that funded projects and activity will begin in April 2018.

And if you’d rather provide your answers in person, we’ll be holding an Open Space event in Bristol in November. Everyone is welcome. More details to follow here and on Twitter soon.

We hope you will join the conversation.  #BrisVisArts
