National Summit 2012
On Thursday, 10th May 2012, we held our third national summit
Hosted by the Greater London Authority at City Hall, London the event included a range of debates both timely and relevant to the sector. The event was open to Network members, visual arts networks and people interested in knowing more about our work to date, and the topics we thought as a Network the visual arts should be discussing.
We created this page to provide information, along with papers and provocations related to the programme for the day.
Networking Event - ICA Debates
On Wednesday, 9th May 2012, the evening before the 3rd national summit, the ICA hosted a series of debates on behalf of Turning Point Network. Will Gompertz led the event, which included three debates.
Summit, Debate 1 - Measuring Value
What new forms of measuring value could we consider in order to find ways of:
- Advocating for the need for a myriad of visual art organisations to receive public funding?
- Articulating the deferred value of small organisations investing in or commissioning early artistic practice and CPD that leads to bigger and better things?
Summit, Debate 2 - Alternative Economies
What other forms of non cash economies can we adopt to enable artists and organisations to continue to develop their practice in this difficult financial climate? What forms of gift economies are artists embracing within their work?
Summit, Debate 3 - Conceptualising Engagement
Quality of experience is a key concept in Arts Council England’s strategy, and a KPI for many NPO organisations, however, Arts Council England has not produced a conceptualisation that would enable this concept. Doing so is vital activity, so how do we do it and what should we consider?
Summit, Debate 4 - Visual Arts and the Education Agenda
What arguments can the visual arts collate to demonstrate the value and importance of visual arts education within all levels of education provision and how can the sector support investment and growth within the creative industries post Education?
