Event Summary

SCAN recently launched our Manifesto for the Visual Arts along with partners Scottish Artists Union and “Engage Scotland” . This day aims to build a consensus around Manifesto priorities and explore ideas around resilience, equalities, labour and fair pay in the contemporary visual arts.

How can we turn these pledges into positive change? What role can the SCAN network play? And how can we learn from others who have practical experience of making change?

With keynote addresses from Andrea Phillips, BALTIC Professor and Director of the BxNU (Baltic x Northumbria University) Institute, and Human Rights Campaigner Amal Azzudin, this day of conversation will bring together ongoing debates in our sector with the urgent implications of the current funding context. Janet Archer, CEO of Creative Scotland, will join us to participate in a facilitated conversation around 4.30pm


This event is free, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
