ARTIST DEVELOPMENT: WORCESTERSHIRE

 

Worcester | Redditch | Bromsgrove | Stourport-on-Severn | Droitwich | Evesham | Kidderminster | Malvern

 

We will use this page to highlight what is going on in Worcestershire's visual arts scene. It will be a resource for artists but also a means by which TPWM can profile a place, offering links to activity in a regional, national and international context where possible. 

 

Worcestershire Contemporary Artists (W-CA)

An artist-led initiative. Members meet regularly and have organised several group exhibitions including MECA 2009 (Malvern Exhibition of Contemporary Art) and The Worcester Open 2010 and 2013. 

W-CA aims to create opportunities and dialogue around contemporary art in Worcestershire, increase exhibition opportunities in Worcestershire and beyond and build lasting relationships that contribute toward the profile of contemporary art in Worcestershire.

 

Worcester Arts Partnership

The Arts Partnership exists to bring together the many different stake holders of the arts in the county. 

The website includes a comprehensive list of artists in the county as well as a guide to the visual arts and assistance in promoting artists and organisations through print distribution.

 

Division of Labour

Sam Curtis: Did anyone ever tell you that you’re beautiful when you’re following orders?, 2012

Division of Labour, founded in 2012, is located in Worcester. The main focus of the gallery is to work with artists who follow themes concerned with production, labour, and collaboration and who are interested in ideas formed from the social, political and economic structures that surround them.

MOVEMENT

MOVEMENT also commission offsite projects.
