Nourish is Yorkshire and Humber Visual Arts Network (YVAN)'s programme of curated conversations with the region's visual arts sector. The aim of Nourish 17 is to start a discussion with up to 150 of the region's artists and visual arts organisations on matters of common concern and to identify shared ways of addressing opportunities and issues.
This year's Nourish conference has been curated by Hack & Host, an artist led organisation specialising in contemporary arts events. The programme explores the theme of sustainability through a series of artist talks, games and conversations.
The keynote speaker for the event is Gregory Sholette – In his wide-ranging art, activist, and writing practice, he has developed a self-described 'viable, democratic, counter-narrative that, bit-by-bit, gains descriptive power within the larger public discourse.' In dozens of essays, three edited volumes, and his own Dark Matter: Art and Politics in an Age of Enterprise Culture (Pluto Press, 2011), Sholette has documented four decades of activist art that, for its ephemerality, politics, and market resistance, might otherwise remain invisible.
