On Saturday 23rd November 2013 at The Spa, Scarborough, Bob & Roberta Smith in partnership with Crescent Arts, Scarborough held the first Art Party Conference.
It was a festive and creative event, as you might imagine, but with a serious agenda addressing the vital importance of the arts and art education in the health, vitality and economy of the United Kingdom.
YVAN, the Yorkshire and Humber Visual Arts Network, part of the national Contemporary Visual Arts Network, sponsored the Conversation stage. We also provided free coaches to and from the Conference for artists and arts professionals across the region.
To record the day, YVAN commissioned two artists, Yvonne Carmichael and Dominic Moore to travel with the coaches and record the experiences of Yorkshire and Humber delegates and capture the flavour of the day.
The two resulting videos can be viewed below.
