The Contemporary Visual Arts Network’s ultimate goal is to nurture contemporary visual artists and organisations in order to produce internationally regarded, critically engaged work that is valued by our society.
We have a consistent message regionally and nationally about the network and the visual arts sector as a whole, and we encourage members to advocate these messages:
Contemporary visual arts are at the heart of our nation, and are central to what makes us expressive and creative individuals within society;
The UK’s contemporary visual arts sector is the world leader in this field, and therefore our country maintains a true competitive advantage;
The sector’s contribution to national and regional economies, and to society in general, far outweighs the small amount of public subsidy it receives.
