Important VASW Website Updated

Important VASW Website Updates
The first stages of the new VASW website are in motion. We're thrilled to announce that we're joining forces with Bristol-based graphic designers Intercity (more on them below) to create an accessible, functional and visually strong site, that will go live early 2020.
Please be aware that during this development, there will be a period in which the current VASW website will be archived. This means that it will still be fully visible and will retain all member information, listed events and opps, and current directory details. However, once the site is archived, there will be no capability to upload new listings, opps, new, and so on.
The current version of the site is set to be archived at the end of October (we will send you an exact date shortly), so we recommend adding any future information (such as events in November and December) you wish to be available on the site as soon as possible. Anything uploaded before its archived will be visible on the archived site.
To ensure that VASW members and the wider audience can still access practical and relevant updates from the visual arts communities across the South West, we will continue to share the latest jobs, opps, events, news and more on our social media channels. Our newsletter will also continue to be at the forefront of what we do, and will contain as much valuable information as possible.
This is a hugely exciting time for everyone that's a part of VASW, and we know that the changes that lie ahead will improve our value and impact greatly. We look forward to sharing more with you very soon.
Meet the Designers
Intercity is a graphic design studio with a network of collaborators from the worlds of art, design, illustration, photography, digital media and beyond. The team (consisting of creative directors Nathan Gale and William Hibberd, and senior designer Trystan Thompson) work together across two studios based in the South West of England.
Intercity applies its highly creative and considered approach across a range of areas including identity, web design, editorial and advertising, and have worked with the likes of Disney, Established & Sons, Laurence King, Nike, and Ocean Studios. In addition to graphic design, the studio also specialises in curatorial and art-based work, including live art projects.
