About Art360

Art360 is a radical project which offers practical support and strategic legacy consultancy for artists and artists estates. It aims to work with 100 contemporary and modern artists and estates.

The ambition of the Art360 programme is to safeguard the ‘soft’ cultural heritage of significant visual artists which, without modest and timely support, could be lost for future generations.

Art360 is offering artists with guidance on archive management, legacy planning and inventory management (amongst others) from a range of experts in their fields. DACS Foundation is working with artists of different generations, backgrounds and in different fields (photography, sculpture, painting etc.) so that we can pool the knowledge and learning and share this with as many artists as possible at the end of the project. We are working with The Henry Moore Foundation, the Art Fund and The National Archives with advisors from Tate, National Galleries of Scotland and Arts Council England.
