Between 30 and 40 artists are selected each year, comprising artists from the Modern British canon (1900 – 2000) and contemporary artists active between 2000 and 2014.
The story of the project is shared through the Art360 website and will include unique materials that are unearthed in the process such as selected documentation, drawings and images of their artworks as well as filmed and recorded interviews and ephemera from the artists' careers.
The project is supported with a series of regional events and workshops to celebrate and promote the notion of 'soft cultural heritage' and legacy planning support for artists and estates across the UK.
Art360 is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
It brings together an important partnership of shared expertise between the Art Fund, DACS, The Henry Moore Foundation and The National Archives.
The Advisory Board has the strategic role of binding the partnership together and allowing a forum for opportunities to be shared. It operates in a non-executive capacity and comprises the project’s funders and representatives of other key stake-holder groups. It offers oversight, advice, support and steering with issues.
