    DOING IT FOR YOURSELF - helping artists to survive and thrive

    Tuesday 29 August, 5.30pm

    Recent technological innovations and changes in creative practice have enabled musicians, film-makers, gamers, artists, photographers, writers, makers, performers and other creatives to self-publish, sell direct and get their product to market by cutting out the middle-man, the intermediaries – the professional publisher, agents, managers and producers who take time and cost money and who, rather than the consumers, are the arbiters of success. However, this has implications, both in the legal world, the business world, for the producer and the consumer and for the longer-term context of digitisation, copyright and earning for artists.

    You are invited to come and hear the results and conclusions of the UEA strands of a five-year, multi-institution research project. You can take part in a discussion about how these issues might affect you and how we might work together to create business models to take advantage of advances in current and future technology and apps.

    Opportunities for Artists/Writers/Performers

    Norwich Castle Open Art Show

    Following the last Norwich Castle Open Art Show in 2014, Inspired by Birds, this one focuses on the theme of inheritance; from architecture to landscape, personal traits to treasured objects. For the first time, the entire submission process is online via the East Anglia Art Fund website and this closes on Saturday 30 September 2017. The selected works (judged by an external panel in November 2017) will subsequently go on display in the Special Exhibition Galleries (Saturday 3 March – Sunday 20 May 2018) alongside Norwich Castle: The Square Box on the Hill (Saturday 10 February – Sunday 3 June 2018), an exhibition illustrating Norwich Castle’s rich history from royal palace, to prison, to museum.


    Explore Wells-next-the-Sea: A Heritage Art Trail from Shore to Sea, and Back Again

    The Wells Maltings Trust, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, is organising a year-long Heritage Art Trail which will be part of our opening festivities for the Wells Maltings in the heart of the Wells in spring of 2018. People of the Shore and Sea Trail organised by the Wells Maltings will feature East Anglian artists. We are looking for artists to create original work to be displayed from March 2018 through April 2019 in Wells.

    We want a wide creative response with a range of possibilities; everything from soundscape, stained glass, woven reeds, to artfully illuminated heritage buildings.  Our selected artists will highlight the heritage of Wells People of the Shore and Sea with innovative works such as a large-scale installation on the Quay in front of the harbour office to an intimate vignette tucked into the alcove by the library.  We want artists to explore all the possibilities of sites extending from Wells town along the channel-side mile to the beach and to the quay with the fisherman’s shed and the Albatros and on to the East Quay. Artists are asked to respond to local heritage and culture with stories from Wells-next-the-Sea, for example: stories of the lifeboat disaster, or the life of a whelker, or the roles of women in the town. The Wells History Group is a vast resource for information, if needed. The selected artists will work alongside professional curators and Maltings staff to place each new work along the beach mile, or in the town, or at the Wells Maltings itself at numerous approved sites. The Wells Maltings will work in tandem with each artist to fabricate the environmentally sensitive footings that will provide a ground for their artwork for a year.

    The artworks must be made specifically for the People of the Shore and Sea Art Trail and can be biodegradable, permanent on the site or for sale after a year's display. A prize of £1,000 will be awarded to an artist by a panel of independent judges for an exceptional work reflecting Wells’ heritage. The Wells Maltings Trust will discuss the cost of artists time and materials once selected.

    All artworks need to be finished by 28 Feb 2018. Applications must be submitted by 1 October 2017 with a £10 entry fee. Artists will be told whether their proposal has been accepted or rejected from the first week of November 2017.

    For more information or questions contact: mary@wellsmaltings.org.uk or visit http://www.wellsmaltings.org.uk/explore-wells-next-sea-heritage-art-trail-shore-sea-back/


    Industry Research & Information

    Cultural Calendar

    The Look Sideways - East Cultural Calendar has now launched, and we want as many people to use it and let us know what they think. It can be used to find out what other organisations across the region are up to, prevent clashes, and allow you all to plan collaborative campaigns more effectively.
    We’re in a development period, so we really want feedback from all organisations, so we can make the tool as functional, and useful, as possible.

    You can login at www.cultural-calendar.co.uk, but if you want to sign up, or you’re not sure if you’ve already got an account, get in touch with Look Sideways Project Manager, James Gorry: james@agencyforchange.co.uk


    Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing

    Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing was published in July, offering research and recommendations for better integration of arts and cultural activities in health and social care. The all party inquiry includes hundreds of interviews and dozens of case studies showing how powerfully the arts can promote health and wellbeing.

    Read the report here.


    Call for Nominations, New Geographies

    The East Contemporary Visual Arts Network (ECVAN) have launched an open call, asking people living in the East of England to nominate overlooked or unexpected places in the region that they find meaningful and interesting, to which artists can respond with site-specific work.

    By asking ‘what is a forgotten place that you think is important to highlight?’ we want more people to share their stories, building upon an active discussion with the potential to connect us to each other and to reimagine our idea of ‘place’.

    The public nominations of overlooked places will create a new map of the East of England made by those who live here. If you live in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk or Suffolk we’d love you to nominate a place through the website, by post (send to Wysing Arts Centre, Fox Rd, Bourn, CB23 2TX), or by email at info@newgeographies.uk

    Please include an image, if possible, and the reason why you are nominating. Entries accepted until 22 October 2017.

    In response to these nominations, ECVAN will commission artists – from the UK and internationally – to highlight some of those places with new site-specific work. This combination of local knowledge and world-class art seeks to create a new vision of the East of England as a place to encounter excellent art in unexpected places.

    Each artwork will be different but all the projects will be united by one thing: their inspiration taken from the people and places where they’re located. New Geographies will create a new democratised map for our region whilst experiencing high-quality international art in unexpected locations. For everyone.

    Follow the project on the dedicated web page here: www.newgeographies.uk


    Fun Palaces Weekend - 7 & 8 October

It’s about bringing people together, celebrating creativity, and having fun. Fun Palaces are free (for people making them and for people participating in them on the weekend), they are for everyone and most importantly every idea you have will be a good one.

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.
