This conference, jointly organised by UWE's Regional History Centre and the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol, explores the interplay between historical concepts of regional identity and their representational expression in the visual arts. Following a keynote address from Sir Howard Newby, it uniquely brings together a number of practicing visual artists and cultural historians and seeks connections between contemporary practice, regional/cultural geography and historical context. To what extent do historical memory, myth and ritual impact upon understandings of regional difference and how have those understandings been mapped and moulded in the arts? And how important have regional arts institutions like the RWA been in the historical manufacturing of civic pride and regional identity?
