artscape - the national directory for arts in education - will be relaunched in December 2003. NAWE maintains this directory and is urging all writers either to update their existing artscape records or to register now.
As the national directory of artists and arts organizations offering educational services, artscape requires that all those listed are committed to - and experienced in - delivering high quality work of the type expected by schools and other educational institutions. In addition, and in accordance with Arts Council England regulations, artscape requires that all individuals named on the database must provide evidence of a Disclosure check (through the Criminal Records Bureau) that is less than one year old. They must also be appropriately insured and provide references from previous projects.

As a registered body with the CRB, NAWE can assist members in obtaining Disclosure checks at the cheapest possible rate. We also offer details of public liability insurance and are currently exploring the possibility of offering all members professional indemnity insurance as a standard membership benefit.

Writers can register online and update their personal records at any time by using a password. We are able to include extracts from published work and audiovisual material (e.g. video or audiotape recordings of readings and performances). These should be emailed to the NAWE office; please contact us for guidance on file formats and size.

The database has been carefully designed to make absolutely clear what each individual writer is prepared to undertake, and on what terms. It has already proved to be an invaluable resource for teachers, advisers, arts agencies and other organisations - and a major source of work for writers.

"It's been fantastic... it looks like I will very shortly be 100% self-supporting thanks to NAWE and the internet."
Ros Barber, writer
