Debate 1 - Measuring Value

What new forms of measuring value could we consider in order to find ways of:

  • Advocating for the need for a myriad of visual art organisations to receive public funding?
  • Articulating the deferred value of small organisations investing in or commissioning early artistic practice and CPD that leads to bigger and better things?  

Also how could our sector work better to mutually support our visual arts ecology recognising that in the long term the larger public institutions and commercial dealers benefit considerably from this myriad of investment at the early stages of artists careers. 


The following people will take part in this panel:

  • Melissa Gronlund, Editor of Afterall Magazine and member of Common Practice Group
  • Kwong Lee, Director, Castlefield Gallery Manchester
