Coventry University and ArtTechSpace Ltd have created an Art Technician training course to address the art technical skills shortage in the Coventry area, which has been running for nearly a year now with good results.
CVAN East Midlands in partnership with ArtTechSpace would like to run a similar programme in the East Midlands but would like to gauge the need for this with some information and feedback from technicians already working in the East Midlands.
The aim of the training would be to provide a high standard of professional training to support employment in the arts and cultural sector. Our Art Technician training sessions and programs are designed to support best practice in the presentation, handling, installation and storage of artworks and artefacts in the gallery/museum setting.
We would appreciate it if you could complete this survey to help us to gauge what your needs may be in terms of up-skilling and professional development, but to also feed into a discussion around devising a training programme in the sector.
