The Artist's Journey. Which way is it now?

Being an artist can take you to places you never thought were possible, but the paths are unclear and the maps complicated. Come on a trip that treads the routes that artists take, goes back to places we have all been before, and shares the picnics along the way to help us plan the next excursions.

This conference forms part of Making Ways, delivered through a partnership with Sheffield Hallam University and Yorkshire and Humber Visual Arts Network (YVAN) with additional support from Bloc Projects and Yorkshire Artspace.
