Anti-racist and Equitable Visual Arts

\ Equality

The Anti-racist and Equitable Visual Arts (AREVA) project was initiated by CVAN London in collaboration with iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) to explore 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. Artist Dr Jack Ky Tan produced a series of knowledge exchange events and a summary report with recommendations. The project was funded by Arts Council England.
