Wysing is the chair and coordinator of the East Contemporary Visual Arts Network (ECVAN); a group of 19 contemporary visual arts organisations and individuals based in the eastern region of England. The network delivers collaborative projects, exploring new ways of working together to support artists, the arts infrastructure and reach new audiences for art in new ways.
We are pleased to announce that we have received funding from ACE to deliver 'New Geographies' from 2017- 2020. See the Press Release here. This project has now been launched and you can follow the details on the dedicated website here.
Since 2009, ECVAN has achieved a successful programme of exhibitions, events, public talks, training workshops, staff development opportunities, knowledge sharing events, and the production of a print portfolio in 2011 supported by a network of patrons and region wide events. To find out more about the Eastern Pavilions Print Portfolio visit www.easternpavilions.org. We also delivered a symposium entitled 'Working Together' on 2 April 2016 at Focal Point Gallery.
