About Us

Parallel Lines is produced by the London Access and Diversity Peer Learning Network and is supported and initiated by Arts Council England. The Access and Diversity Peer Learning Network brought together senior representatives from Arts Council England’s regularly funded visual arts and architecture organisations to share experiences, discuss issues with their peers, and find collective solutions to common needs. The Network explored how these organisations could work together to identify and implement new ideas and best practice in issues of access and diversity.

Facilitated by the Serpentine Gallery, members of the network included representatives from: Acme StudiosAction Space; Architecture Foundation; Architecture Centre NetworkArt in the open / An Open House resource; Art MonthlyArtangelArtquestThe Arts Catalyst; ArtsadminAutograph ABPB3MediaBeaconsfieldBookworksThe Building ExploratoryCamden Arts CentreChisenhale Gallery; CGP LondonContemporary Applied ArtsContemporary Art SocietyCrafts CouncilCubitt; Electra; Emergency Exit ArtsEngage; Film and Video UmbrellaFilm LondonFormaFour Corners; FurtherfieldHeart n Soulhome live art; ICAInivaLive Art Development Agency; London Design Festival; London Print StudioLondon Printmakers; The London Printworks TrustLuxMatt's GalleryMotiroti; MuteNew Work Network; NFASP; No.w.here; onedotzeroOpen House; The Otolith GroupPaddington Arts; PhotofusionThe Photographer’s Gallery; PlatformProboscisRaking LeaveResonance fmRoyal College of ArtSHAPE; The ShowroomSouth London GallerySpace Studios; Third Text; Triangle Arts Trust / Gasworks; VocalEyes and Whitechapel Gallery.
