Since 2009, AIRTIME events for artists have enabled them to both explore their approaches and strategies for their practice and to access information and networking opportunities.
Following AIR Advisory Group member Sally Sheinman’s exploratory visit to the European Council of Artists (ECA) conference in Dublin in November, AIR is being invited to join this important umbrella body, composed of interdisciplinary artists’ councils and artists’ organisations from twenty-five European countries.
In November, AIR celebrated its two-year milestone and the launch of the Artists’ Insurance Policy (AIP) with a gathering for artists and the art world. Held in the Art Café at London’s Toynbee Studios, AIR Advisory Group member artist Mitra Memarzia presented her take on the value of collective action.
