ABOUT THIS NETWORK
The Fellow Artists’ Network (FAN), was started to give working artists the opportunity to network, discuss issues important to them, and to show their (and others') work. Core members are Andrew Darke, Chair, environmental artist; Mark Power, Secretary, architect; Hazel Chandler, Creative Director, filmmaker; and Philip Emery, Treasurer, musician. The group was founded by Ann Kristin Glenster FRSA.
Artists are often working alone in their studio or at their computer and we wanted to break that isolation and come together. We organised a visit to the Jubiloo at South Bank, designed by Mark Power; an evening of short films; a concert by ex-prisoners who then talked about how music helps them; a guided tour around the Saw Swee Hock student centre and so on. Discussions range from Arts Council funding to ethics and editorial control. We are currently developing the project "What's On Your Walls?" about what people put on their walls and what art means to them. Look out for events advertised on the RSA website and join us - you don't have to be an artist, just interested in the arts and we welcome suggestions for events.
