Gaining Ground: National Federation of Artists Studio Providers (NFASP)
Thursday 29 – Friday 30 November

Gaining Ground was the first national conference by the National Federation of Artists Studio Providers (NFASP) and took place at Spike Island, Bristol. The NFASP is the new organisation promoting the activities of existing affordable studio organisations and helping to develop new ones. The conference was attended by artists, studio organisers and those who support artists. Developers, planners and arts funders are learning to value what artists have always known; that artists need a place to research, think, experiment and make work. Chaired by Peter Boyden with Gavin Turk as a guest speaker and a range of practical and inspirational sessions, the conference opened with a party and networking event. Artquest provided a limited number of travel bursaries for artist-led, non-profit studio providers from London.
