About Art in Norwich and Norwich Visual Art Forum
Art in Norwich is a joint marketing initiative which is part of the Norwich Visual Art Forum which was originally started by the Norfolk Museums service and Norwich City Council to network the visual art groups in the city. With a large number of active groups producing and exhibiting visual art, it was important to develop an anti-clash calendar for organisations in the city, and a greater awareness of planning and programming to avoid awkward or inadvertent collisions. The partners contribute this calendar, co-ordinated, designed and produced twice a year in March and August by Marion Catlin of Culture Shift Norwich. Partners also help to distribute the booklet.
For details about how to be an Art in Norwich partner, please see the panel on the right.
The group has been meeting for some years and has expanded. Following the example of sister group, Music in Norwich it was decided to get together regularly, not just to produce the joint exhibition listing calendar but to enable all members to be informed of each others plans and activities and to explore potential for joint programming and strategic actions. The aim is to promote visual art, sculpture and public art more widely across Norwich, Norfolk and the country. Meetings are convened twice a year and are hosted by partners at various locations.

The cost of production is shared by the contributors on a per page rate: there are 'listing' pages (current cost £100) and 'feature' pages (current £160). Listing pages follow the house format with a bit of information about the organisation. Feature pages are own artwork and can be any style. They are generally more prominent and so cost more. The extra money helps to increase the print run.
