a-n launched its current series of UK-wide one-day Assembly events at Paradise Works, Salford with a packed day of discussion that included presentations exploring how to create and sustain a building-based artist-led organisation. Writer and curator Tom Emery reports.
The second a-n Assembly of 2018, taking place at Eastside Projects in Birmingham on 15 June, will explore the impact on artists, residents and arts organisations of the city’s ambitions to grow and regenerate.
After four years in the role, a-n’s director Jeanie Scott is to step down later this year.
Talks, tours, seminars, workshops, DIY building, chopping, cooking, eating: just some of the activities undertaken by artists at a-n’s Assembly events throughout May and June 2017. Here we pull together a collection of images from the events in Margate, Liverpool, Bristol, Newcastle and Leeds.
