Better Together #1: AREVA Report Thursday 20 July, CVAN East Midlands

Dr Jack Ky Tan, artist-lawyer and author of AREVA,  and Dr Jo Townshend, Director CVAN London join CVAN East Midlands for Better Together #1:

Bi-monthly Better Together sessions will take place online and offer an opportunity for change makers in the East Midlands to connect. Each session will be framed by a different urgent topic that is relevant to both the region and wider sector.

We particularly encourage attendance from directors and programme leads and welcome participants to share with the group current challenges that their organisation is facing, helping establish a supportive space for shared learning and development.

For Better Together #1: AREVA Report we will welcome artist Dr Jack Ky Tan and CVAN London Director Dr Jo Townshend will discuss the CVAN London x INIVA Report on Anti-Racism and Equity in the Visual Arts.

The AREVA report sets out a new approach to tackling racism and inequity in the visual arts sector, and makes recommendations for a long-term, anti-racist development scheme to be adopted by arts institutions.

Written by artist Dr Jack Ky Tan the report is the culmination of a knowledge exchange project initiated by CVAN London (Contemporary Visual Arts Network) in collaboration with iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts), exploring how arts organisations may establish and support anti-racist and equitable working practices. The project was started following increasing reports of racist incidents experienced by artists and cultural workers in the sector, and the desire expressed by CVAN’s members to create a meaningful, proactive response to bring about change.
