Glinkowski, Paul and Jones, Susan (2005) Future Forecast: future space, addressing future roles and functions of artists' workspace. a-n.

Type of Research: Article
Creators: Glinkowski, Paul and Jones, Susan

As lead policy officer in the Visual Arts Department at Arts Council England's national office (2000-03) concerned with strategy for artists' studios, Glinkowski masterminded a series of three National Studios Conferences (www.artscouncil.org.uk/documents/publications/phpf5LAt5.doc) and authored and edited an accompanying publication 'Open Studios: A Gem Worth Polishing' (http://artscouncil.org.uk/publications/publication_detail.php?sid=17&id=196&page=2).

In 2004, Glinkowski was engaged by a-n, the Artists Information Company to conduct an extensive programme of research to identify:

1) A series of 12 in-depth case studies illustrating different strategies that studio organisations in the UK have developed in order to achieve their development goals (http://www.a-n.co.uk/research/article/229100. The profiles were compiled following a series of research interviews with the principal people involved in each featured organisation.

2) A publication, 'Future Space', that sought to identify and predict what the workspace needs of practising visual artists might be by 2015. The research for this publication involved the identification and interviewing of 38 individuals with a particular expertise or point of view to contribute on this subject, including practising artists (in a range of media and at different career stages); arts policy makers; studios managers; urban planners; and curators/gallery directors. The survey sample ranged from emerging artists to eminent figures in the contemporary art world (Sir Christopher Frayling, Sandy Nairne). This publication, along with edited transcripts from each of the 38 interview responses can be accessed at http://www.a-n.co.uk/research/article/227438

Made possible through a grant from Arts Council England to a-n specifically for the purpose of developing this research material, the outcomes are freely available on-line to practising professional visual artists and others concerned with the current and future workspace needs of artists, in the UK and internationally. The provision of suitable and affordable artists' workspace has been identified by ACE as a priority development need within the overall infrastructure of the visual arts in the UK.
