New Geographies commissions include LGBTQI+ open rambles and artworks inspired by Brexit and witches

April 2019 — August 2020

East Contemporary Visual Arts Network (ECVAN) is delighted to announce the first wave of art commissions for New Geographies, a three-year project that sets out to create a new map of the East of England based on local reflections and stories of unexplored or overlooked places.

New Geographies is comprised of ten commissions in total, and those realised so far include an East of England LGBTQI+ walking group, an exhibition exploring the historic demonization of so-called witches in the East Anglia region, live workshops in Tilbury dealing with EU Citizens’ rights after Brexit, and an exploration of post-war New Towns such as Harlow, Basildon and Hatfield.
