Essex Network of Artists Studios

ENAS logo_large Essex Network of Artists’ Studios (ENAS) is a new support and development initiative for artists and studios across the county. ENAS is an initial two-year pilot programme (2014- 2016) funded by Essex County Council, firstsite and Arts Council England. With input from these organisations as well as consultation and support from eight ‘foundation’ studios, ENAS is a network for artists, for studios, for the public and for Essex.

ENAS will:

  • Increase artistic excellence by encouraging creative dialogue between studios through collaborative commissioning and engagement programmes, and providing a range of creative professional development opportunities including peer-to-peer review.
  • Raise the profile of studios in Essex through a range of co-ordinated networking events, open studios and exhibitions. Working with further education institutions in the region, ENAS will promote the benefits of studio practice for emerging artists.
  • Increase Essex’s reputation as a culturally vibrant county, known for its innovative work and recognised for best practise through making links and partnerships with other national and regional arts organisations.
  • Enable studios to thrive by providing a forum for studios and artists to share ideas, resources and opportunities and signposting of information.
  • Develop and broaden audiences and professional and peer networks, encouraging more people to engage with Essex studios through umbrella marketing campaigns, reaching new regional audiences. ENAS aims to link curators, buyers and other artists and studio groups working nationally directly with Essex artists, as well as provide opportunities for studios and artists to raise their profiles online.
  • Increase business resilience through becoming a pivotal resource for artists and those looking for space, as well as landlords wanting to lease vacant premises.
  • Ensure long term sustainability of the network, through exploring different constitutional models. Foundation studios will benefit from business ‘health checks’ which identify and fund key priorities for these studios which contribute to their longer term security.

Essex Network of Artists’ Studios is an initiative that works with studios, but does not have a permanent base. ENAS is hosted by both:
