SCAN Open Meeting Hawick

17:30 on 10 March 2014
Room 305, Tower Mill, Heart of Hawick

5.30-7pm with networking opportunity afterwards

Scottish Contemporary Art Network (SCAN) is hosting an informal meeting, workshop and networking event as part of a Scotland wide ‘roadshow’ to speak to those working across the contemporary visual arts in Scotland. This is an opportunity for anyone working in this area discuss and workshop the development needs for contemporary art across Scotland.

SCAN is a membership body committed to fostering a strong network of members from across all disciplines within contemporary art (curation, galleries, writing, producing, artistic practice etc) that will work together to share best practice, skills, knowledge and resources for the collective good and long term sustainability of the contemporary art sector.

This event and the information gathered from it will help SCAN identify new objectives and priorities that will feed directly into programming plans across our advocacy, networking, professional development and research activities.

Seonaid Daly from SCAN will introduce the organisation, and this will be followed by a couple of short talks from special guests working in the Borders area. Speakers will be announced shortly.

The aim of the event is to bring together those working within visual arts in the area. This could be art agencies, curators, collectives, project managers, producers, gallery managers, gallery educators, community arts, writers, academics, lecturers, students, local authority officers and of course artists.

You do not need to be a member of SCAN to attend. This is an opportunity to input into a discussion about the bigger picture within contemporary visual arts in Scotland.

Refreshments provided!
