For the last 2 years I've been a trustee of the emerging Nottingham Contemporary. Its been fascinating - and quite a lot of work - to participate in creating a new kind of art institution. An art institution 'fit-for-purpose' in the 21st Century
“Art is what makes life more interesting than art”. Robert Filliou
At Nottingham Contemporary we believe that contemporary artists offer extraordinary perspectives on society, and so:
• We promote the research, exchange and dissemination of ideas inspired by today’s art practices across disciplines and cultures, working with a wide range of partners.
• We are committed to excellence, experimentation, ambition and innovation - in contemporary art and within our own organisation.
• We work to attract new audiences to contemporary art through imaginative educational activities, our communications and our events.
• We support the creative and critical empowerment of artists and audiences. Both groups play an active role in our organisation.
• We give local people a stimulating cultural and social home, while attracting national and international visitors to the city.
