CVAN East Midlands encompasses Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Rutland. Our strength lies in our network.

We celebrate and support arts and culture in the region, working to champion artists and foster an inclusive long-term future of the sector. CVAN EM is a catalyst for conversation and collaborative action, emphasising equity and access for all arts workers.

CVAN EM nurtures regional and cross-regional connectivity and engagement through participation, working in partnership with organisations and creatives across the East Midlands to build sustainable infrastructures, present opportunities and deliver artist development activity. In 2021/22, we will embark on work that develops and broadens the network and ensures our processes and activities centre on transparency, diversity and representation.

Our Regional Director is supported by a growing Steering Group composed of representatives from regional organisations and artists working across the East Midlands.

CVAN East Midlands is part of the Leceister Print Workshop.
