ACT NOW. Help build a better and more representative future for CVAN NW

Posted on 22 October 2021

Contemporary Visual Arts Network North West (CVAN NW) creates opportunities for artists, organisations and professionals to develop their practice, share ideas, knowledge and resources, and cultivate relationships.

CVAN NW is undertaking a Strategic Development Review to ensure that they are better placed to anticipate and represent the needs of visual artists and the wider North West visual arts ecology in the future.

We want the wider visual arts community in our region to have a voice in how we move forward together, to help us identify the most important actions we can take over the next 18 months and to help our network thrive and grow.

We know that there’s been a significant number of surveys recently, but this is your opportunity to help shape CVAN NW for the future and should only take around 10 minutes to complete.

To submit your responses please visit this link:

**Spread the word. Forward this survey to your peers and networks.**

The deadline for responses is Sunday 24 October 2021.
