CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS IN RURAL CONTEXTS
Seminar at Coxwold Village Hall, Coxwold, North Yorkshire
Friday 2 October, 2015 10am – 3.45pm Cost: £10
Organised by Chrysalis Arts in partnership with Yorkshire and Humber Visual Arts Network (YVAN)
The day will explore how contemporary artists working in rural environments and with rural themes, either permanently or as part of short term projects and residencies, are developing new platforms and ideas for creating and showcasing visual arts practice and new approaches to collaboration and audience engagement.
As well as highlighting some current ideas and approaches inspiring artists, artist-led groups and curators, the seminar will look at how individual artists and those who work with them can create future projects and work opportunities – and what support could assist them.
For artists, arts managers, community and environmental officers, national parks, local authorities and others who commission and collaborate with visual artists.
There will be plenty of opportunities for networking and discussion. In addition, delegates who already have ideas for projects may book a slot for a one to one advice session. Following the event, artists are invited to apply for one of three awards of £300 to support further development of their ideas.
A buffet lunch is included along with an opportunity for a lunchtime visit to Shandy Hall and to the Sentimental Landscapes exhibition.
Seminar fee is £10 including a buffet lunch. To book a place, contact Chrysalis Arts: firstname.lastname@example.org / 01756 748529
