From rugged rural coastlines to clustered urban environments, VASW connects artistic communities throughout South West England as a way of raising visibility, advocating diversity and developing resilience across the visual arts sector.
VASW’s core aims are:
- Increased recognition of the value of the visual arts locally, regionally and nationally
- Development of a sustainable, supportive and inter-connected sector
- To tackle structural and systemic issues in the sector
VASW are based at Spike Island as part of our National Portfolio Organisation status, funded by the Arts Council England.
