Eden Valley Artistic Network is a group of artists, organisations and venues based
in the North Lakes, West Lakes and Eden Valley.
The Eden Valley Artists Network (EVAN) is a network created by a group of artists who felt the need within the local area for artistic developmental opportunities and promotion, that would bring wider benefit to communities in the North Lakes, West Lakes and Eden Valley (North of Cumbria). We pride ourselves on being inclusive and accessible to everyone, and work hard to break down barriers and judgment around engagement with art for both practitioners and audiences.
Formed from the concept that an artistic network should be friendly, welcoming and inviting, EVAN is an inclusive organisation and welcomes all artists, from those just starting out on the artistic path to those who are creative professionals with a contemporary attitude. We think all artists have something to offer society.
We have an open-door policy and aim to connect like-minded individuals who are interested in the arts. We bring artists together to meet, network and build professional relationships with other artists in the Eden Valley and North Lakes.

whatever their chosen medium.
We do this by being supportive and adopting a deeply encouraging
