WEVAA is a consortium partnership of nine organisations co-lead by Spike Island and Visual Arts South West and including The Brunswick Club, Bath Spa School of Art, Bristol City Council, Creative Youth Network, Culture Weston, North Somerset Council and UWE Bristol.
This alliance is delivering a three-year programme of activity with the aim of supporting visual arts progression in the region, with the collective vision for the visual arts community in Bristol and the West of England to become more progressive, sustainable and inclusive by 2024.
Increasing the number and quality of commissions for visual artists in the West of England is a central objective of the programme and The Brunswick Club is leading on the artist-led commissioning programme for artists, of which this event is part.
