Visual Arts Leadership Programme

Visual Arts South West Leadership Programme (VASWLP) was a leadership development programme commissioned by Visual Arts South West and funded by Arts Council England, for artists, curators and managers working in the visual arts in the South West. VALPSW was about developing individuals, organisations and the sector and put participants’ artistic vision first and looked at how they can work to achieve that vision. 

The programme was made up of five day long workshops running from April to November 2013, plus 1:1 mentoring for all participants. It was led by Debbie Kingsley. A full evaluation report of the programme is available to view here.
