Description

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Own Art we have created a short film about the scheme, including footage from our Jeremy Deller commission and interviews from some of our member galleries. The film includes interviews with Peter Heslip, Director of Visual Arts at Arts Council England, Mary-Alice Stack our Chief Executive, some of our Own Art member galleries. The film also has some exclusive footage from the reveal of Jeremy Dellers animation at Westfields co-commissioned by ourselves and The Space. Since its launch in 2004, over 30,000 people have used the scheme to purchase in excess of £25 million of contemporary art and craft. www.ownart.org.uk
