Artist’s Conference in Sheffield: 22 Feb
Thursday 22nd February
9.30am – 4pm: Pennine Lecture Theatre, Sheffield Hallam University
4 – 6.30pm: Yorkshire Artspace
This event is free to attend, all artists welcome.
A day of presentations, performances and discussions exploring the Artist’s Journey, you will be joined by a regional audience of artists and students from across Yorkshire & Humber.
Being an artist can take you to places you never thought were possible, but the paths are unclear and the maps complicated. Please join us 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.
The day will open with a talk by Tim Etchells and will end with a performance lecture by Chris Dobrowolski it will feature contributions and discussions ranging from early career to established artists with local, regional, national and international recognition.
We will end the day with a celebration, drinks and music hosted by Yorkshire Artspace and supported by Bloc Projects, where you will be able to continue conversations, ask questions, meet new people and expand your network.
