East End collaboration

Rosetta Arts

CVAN London is working with Rosetta Arts to support creatives develop their professional practice. The Rosetta Artist Accelerator scheme kickstarts the careers of local emerging artists and CVAN London highlights the success of this ongoing programme and its contribution to Newham’s Creative Future.

Rosetta Arts are Working in a spirit of collaboration and connectivity with creatives across East London. They are supporting carefully selected artists with access to networks, know-how, opportunities, bursaries, as well as studio space and mentoring sessions with experienced professionals, all to help develop their socially engaged practices in the local community.

Artists need support throughout their creative journey.  In my opinion there is a need for more programmes such as the Artist Accelerators to help our local creatives develop their professional practice. Being a practicing artist can be a lonely profession and it is important to create spaces and programmes where they are supported and given creative freedom to explore ideas and develop their networks; by giving them the tool and resources to build their confidence and develop new skills to take their practice to the next level and crystallise their ambitions.”  Trisha McCauley, Programme Manager

Artists are greatly benefiting from the programme, “Having access to the studios was really great; it enabled me to explore and experiment with different techniques from silk screen painting, printmaking to experimenting with clay which I hadn’t done before. It has been brilliant to have this opportunity.” Elena Juzulenaite, 2022-3 Artist Accelerator

CVAN London and Rosetta are collaborating to support artists professional practice and broaden access to visual arts networks. We are proud to be working with Rosetta Arts as a member of our Steering Group and celebrate the artists from the Artist Accelerators.

Sanaz Amidi, CEO of Rosetta Arts: “Being a CVAN London Steering Group member allows Rosetta Arts to maintain an invaluable connection to important discussions across the visual arts. In order to enact change, collectives like CVAN are essential when it comes to addressing the importance of the arts in our everyday lives and within government policy.”
