We support the institutional and network development of anti-racist and equitable practice. This is facilitated by Dr Jack Ky Tan, artist-lawyer, and co-produced with members in London as the Anti-Racist and Equitable Visual Arts (AREVA) project and nationally, through the CVAN Fair and Equitable programme.

The Anti-Racist and Equitable Visual Arts (AREVA) project sets out a new approach to tackling racism and inequity in the visual arts sector. 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. The project and its recommendations underpin all our work.
