Artists’ practices are characterised by persistence. Continuous research and development is punctuated and energised by creative interaction, provoked and inspired through multiple communications and dialogues, all the time gathering the momentum which drives and sustains them over a life-time. This symposium for artists in Somerset and the South West offers new conversations, skills, insight and resources, providing space for independent and collective reflection and learning and exposing fresh ideas about collaboration and activism.

Contributors include Lydia Catterall on being resilient, Rebecca Chesney on working across boundaries, Anna Francis on interventions for social change, Kerry Harker on artists and galleries, Nicola Naismith 2017/18 Clore Leadership Programme Visual Artist Fellow on the autonomous artist and managing editor of Corridor8 and writer Lara Eggleton on artists and art writing.

Symposium developed through a collaboration between arts researcher Susan Jones and Anna Best, artist and initiator of Prospectus. Produced & organised by Somerset Art Works, working in partnership with Visual Arts South West and University Centre Somerset. Supported by Arts Council England.
