‘The Role of Visual Arts Organisations in the British Black Arts Movement in the Midlands’ is a research network funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Co-led by Carolina Rito (Coventry University) and Paul Goodwin (University of the Arts London), this project explored the institutional and curatorial strategies of the movement in the 1980s, and the institutional support in promoting and showing Black curators and artists then and today. The network it created also aimed to understand how the 1980s movement’s motivations can provide models for the sector today. With thanks to our panellists Anjalie Dalal-Clayton, Ian Sergeant and Marlene Smith.
