Contemporary Art Norwich is a biennial celebration of international contemporary
visual art in venues and city centre sites across Norwich supported by a year
round programme of exhibitions, commissions, artist support initiatives and
education and audience development activity.
Contemporary Art Norwich is an umbrella organisation that brings together a wide range of arts organisations, reinforcing the city’s reputation as a place that celebrates world-class talent and creativity and welcomes visual artists from the UK and around the world.
Norwich University of the Arts is a dynamic creative community in
the centre of Norwich. It is an independent HE institution within the University
sector. By Order of the Privy Council, in November 2007 they were granted
the powers to award their own degrees up to Masters level.
It is a place of ideas and innovation where students are encouraged to question assumptions and challenge existing boundaries of practice. Students who graduate from the courses have had every opportunity to become confident and independent practitioners in their field of the visual arts and design.
Norfolk & Norwich Festival is the international arts festival for the
East of England and is one of the most significant festivals in the UK with
a reputation for innovative and inspirational programming.
Under the leadership of Artistic Director Jonathan Holloway the programme has expanded from its original music base to include large scale events, outdoor and site specific performances, circus, physical/visual theatre and is establishing the Festival as an international commissioning force.
