The Reset: Mandy Fowler on Support Networks for Curators

VASW welcomes curator and producer Mandy Fowler to host a webinar for curators to support their work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
About this Event

Visual Arts South West presents The Reset, a summer series of online talks and presentations in collaboration with Contemporary Visual Arts Network.

The Reset series is a combined offer supporting our national and regional networks to find ways to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and its far-reaching effects on our sector. The discussions will address pressing questions on reopening our venues; adjusting to the demands of social distancing; staying in touch with our communities; advocacy work; weathering the economic impact on our professional field, and retaining our value.

Responding to the data collected via CVAN’s recent impact survey, these webinars are designed to bring the visual arts together, provide confidence, celebrate innovation and foster interconnectedness as we all move into the next phase of response and recovery.

Mandy Fowler on Support Networks for Curators

For the second event of The Reset, we welcome curator and producer Mandy Fowler to host a webinar for South West based curators. 

On Wednesday 15 July 2020, from 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM - Free to book your place and to find out more visit - Eventbrite

While cultural venues are closed and the safety of our communities during the pandemic remains the top priority, curators are either dramatically reconfiguring or postponing their projects with the knowledge that this directly impacts the employment of others. The suspension of core funding schemes is also affecting the development and delivery of projects further into the future, whilst adding insecurity to the already precarious employment of independent curators. 

Fowler’s webinar invites South West based curators to gather and share strategies on how to support one another at a time when many are working and overcoming unprecedented professional challenges in isolation. The webinar will be an opportunity to connect with others through conversation, map out support networks available to us and identify where further potential for expanding our networks may still lie untapped.
