The EAST Contemporary Visual Arts Network network is working together to achieve  

  • market development
  • audience development

Through Eastern Pavilions, EAST Contemporary Visual Arts Network  is delivering a collaborative project with visual arts organisations from across the eastern region. It explores new ways of working together and builds on the diverse and exciting range of activity that is being undertaken there.

The Eastern Pavilions mission is to deliver an excellent programme of activity that includes research, partnerships, training, advocacy and vision.

Eastern Pavilions consists of; a series of talks exploring contemporary approaches to supporting artists and organisations that in turn support artists, a print portfolio supported by a network of patrons and region wide events that include opportunities to purchase artworks, and become immersed in a wealth of new and challenging experiences.
