ActionSpace’s Co-Director Sheryll Catto was on a panel of speakers to discuss the Contemporary Visual Arts Network campaign #ArtIsEssential which aims to make the visual arts visible and to discuss how in these uncertain times #ArtIsEssential.
#ArtIsEssential calls for those working in the visual arts sector to unite to influence policy and decision-makers to do the right thing by the visual arts sector. To demonstrate the far-reaching impact of the visual arts and the vital role in building back the health and wealth post-Brexit and during the COVID-19 recovery.
Join in with the campaign and take to social media to call for why you believe art is essential.
The campaign started with a zoom event with a panel of speakers stating why they believe art is essential. Watch the video recording of the full talk here. A full transcript is also available.
