The past twelve months has seen the culmination and success of B.professional our programme of development opportunities for artists and audiences. For which we hosted three artist residencies in Wellingore and mentored six East Midlands based artists, each of whom gave a presentation about their work at one of three well attended B.talking events.

Another significant and successful activity has been Beacon’s membership of EM15 a partnership of four East Midlands based visual art organisations. It has been a tremendous experience working with our partners One Thoresby Street, Nottingham, QUAD, Derby and New Art Exchange, Nottingham. As a result of over 18 months of meetings, planning the EM15 partnership presented the first East Midlands pavilion at the Venice Biennale this year. We are now in the preliminary planning stages for Venice 2017!  http://em15venice.co.uk
