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 publication includes new insights about the process, and interviews with key researchers and practitioners in the field. It presents a series of recommendations and considerations for funders, cultural organisations and the HE sector, and feedback from the cultural partners.
