a-n The Artists Information Company

a-n The Artists Information Company is the leading resource for professional artists in the UK . It publishes a monthly magazine with articles, listings, news and opportunities, and a website, www.a-n.co.uk.

The website provides practical information and personal reports by artists on all aspects of working as a professional artist, all specially commissioned by a-n. The main information section, Knowledge Bank, has four main headings:

  • Making a Living including Markets; Employment.
  • Time and Space including Academic research; Commissions; Engaged practice; Prizes and awards; Residencies; Studios.
  • Profile and Promotion including Art world; Artists strategies.
  • Professional Practice including Code of practice; interactive contracts; Practical guides; Research; Signpost (for recent graduates); Interactive toolkits including the artist's development toolkit, the studios toolkit, and the artist's contracts toolkit.

The site also has the current and back issues of a-n Magazine to November 2000 available online, and a regularly updated Opportunities section and an Organisations directory.

The excellent search function can pull information from all parts of the site. The search terms Collaboration, Professional Development and Public Art all produce a long list of articles and advice available on the site. Go to www.a-n.co.uk for up to date search results.

Some of the site content is freely available, but the vast majority is accessible only to subscribers for a modest annual fee, which includes subscription to the magazine.
