Our Artistic Manager, Katherine Long, is Cotton On MCR's 'Manc of the Month' for May 2020! The online guide to Manchester's art scene interviewed Katherine recently. They describe how she has spent the last few weeks working incredibly hard, along with her artistic team "...trying to change how Venture Arts runs and interacts with its artists during this tricky time". In their words "...my days, has she done a good job!" It's a well-deserved achievement for Katherine who describes how new ways of supporting and working with our artists during the Covid-19 lock-down had to be found:
Venture Arts is a huge part of our artists' and my life. I have been there for 16 years and in that time, I and many other members of the staff team, have built up great relationships with the artists and their families, and so the thought of closing our doors and having no contact with them was heart-breaking and just wasn’t an option.’You can read the full article here.
