Visual arts organisations a-n The Artists Information Company and engage, the National Association for Gallery Education have forged a strategic partnership based on a mutual interest in enhancing professional development for their members and the visual arts sector.

Jane Sillis, Director of engage, said: “We’re very pleased to be developing our relationship with a-n. Our partnership will be a very positive development for both organisations at a strategic time”.

a-n Director Susan Jones said: “With the harsh economic situation faced in the visual arts, we feel it’s vital to partner and share resources with like-minded arts organisations where this can reduce costs and enhances benefits to our sector. We are delighted to be partnering with engage in this way and look forward to future collaborations.”

Immediate benefits will include reduced membership rates and reciprocal publishing of specialist resources to support professional development, with new resources and professional practice opportunities for artists and arts professionals being explored for the future.
