NAWM is a Turning Point West Midlands (TPWM) initiative with gallery partners and universities in the West Midlands.

Professor John Butler, Head of the School of Art, BIAD, Birmingham City University, and Chair of TPWM: ‘Birmingham and the wider West Midlands region now has one of, if not the, most exciting art scenes in the country. The key is to support emerging artists and, crucially, prove that this is the place to stay and forge a career. New Art West Midlands can provide an important first rung on the ladder for these artists, bringing their work to the attention of the art market, arts venues, critics, media and employers.”
