When & Where
UK Cultural Contact Point: Visiting Arts
Visiting Arts' purpose is to strengthen intercultural understanding through the arts.
Since 1977 Visiting Arts has worked with some of the world's most innovative contemporary artists in programmes that engage and inspire young people, communities and future professionals. We've worked in diverse regions and countries including China, Central and Eastern Europe pre-1990 and more recently in Iran and across the Middle East. Working with a range of partners including the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, British Council, Gulbenkian Foundation and Ministries of Culture across the globe, Visiting Arts has also conducted research around international cultural leadership including trends in and barriers to international working and needs analyses. We provide information and advice, create opportunities for artists to make new connections and provide training for established and emerging cultural professionals.
"Visiting Arts through my career has picked me up and given me wonderful insights to artists and cultures round the world, most recently in an unforgettable trip to Iran. They have changed my world and I am very excited by their plans to change their role which I know will provide more inspiration in the years to come."
- Ruth Mackenzie, Director, Cultural Olympiad for London 2012
