To celebrate 10 years of AA2A schemes we have put together a celebratory document in the form of a digital publication called 'Time and Space' which we will promote and circulate during 2010.
Click to open 'Time and Space'or a full 'print quality version' Over 800 artists who have been on AA2A schemes since 1999 were invited to send us their AA2A story and submit three images of their work. The 20 Artistsí stories were selected from the submissions to form 'Time and Space' which we will promote and circulate during 2010.
Selection was done by the AA2A national administration team and Arts Council England. In our selection we hoped to represent the great variety of artists who have been on AA2A schemes, their different experiences, practices and backgrounds.
Those artists' stories which were not selected are also available, forming a valuable archive of additional stories.

I would like to take this opportunity not only to thank all the artists who have been on AA2A in its first ten years but also all the staff in Universities and Colleges whose commitment to the project makes its such a success; helping artists to realise their dreams and students to imagine their future.
