All seems a bit quiet here, but we've been busy networking and visiting the UoL degree shows at the beginning of June, along with planning and organising. We had initially intended to have an LAN event mid-June, but that will now be mid July, as Fiona and I have been busy meeting with the council to discuss potential community projects for which there may be funding available for us to do in Bracebridge.
Last Friday was a site visit around the old gasworks, and the area to look at sites for these.
We've also been putting together an Arts Council grant application, and there's a meeting to discuss this at the beginning of July.
We're pleased to have received the first submission for the Outer Trial Bank project, having contacted as many graduates of the UoL degree shows as possible.
In other news, we received an inquiry about the Christmas Market for this year. If there's enough interest, it will definitely be worth doing that again - it was a lot of fun last year, and we hope it'll be better this year!
We're still looking for an additional committee member to support funding applications - if you're an artist based in Lincoln (with no affiliation to any other arts groups) and can support the LAN, we'd love to hear from you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line LAN Committee if interested.
A meeting is planned to discuss the Outer Trial Bank project for all artists involved and those wishing to support the LAN on Thursday 11th July, at Norman St. 4.00p.m. - 7.00p.m. Please RSVP to contact.lincolnartistnetwork@gmail or comment if you can make it, so we have an idea of numbers.
