Become a member of the Landscape & Arts Network
In the first instance, membership of the Landscape and Arts Network makes you a backer of its founding aims as pursued in its new direction. As this new direction takes shape, we will be looking to engage our members in specific opportunities within their local areas. LAN is currently carving out niches within the infrastructure of landscape governance that will afford members much more direct involvement in the assessments and decision-making pertaining to landscape change at local level. From 2017, we will start offering members mentoring and support in taking up these roles. LAN will work on establishing frames of reference for these roles that will be protective of the need for artists to be able to do the work on their own terms.
Naturally, as we take steps to create this interface between grassroots artists and the government agencies, funding bodies, NGOs and the private sector companies that are alive to the strategic value of artist input, members will be in a position to influence the ways in which these opportunities get shaped.
As we build our capacity we will be able to start giving members more specific benefits but for now, if you support our plan of action, then do please join and become part of a great network able to join the dots and put creativity at the centre of landscape governance.
