Cultural Co-operation set up its Artist Network in 2001 with a single aim: to help isolated and under-represented artists in London's cosmopolitan population to participate fully in public cultural life.
The artists in our network tend to be among those most likely to suffer the effects of isolation and lack of opportunity, thereby leading to a huge waste of talent that diminishes the quality of life for us all.
The Network is a direct challenge to this situation and works to improve things.
The Artist Network has grown from humble beginnings a decade ago in response to increasing demand from artists themselves and thanks to a vision shared by CCs staff, volunteers and friends over the years. Modest financial inputs from Trusts and Foundations from time to time have been most welcome, whilst more consistent funding continues to be sought.
