UKYA & Platform Nord are pleased to announce a new international joint working programme for young artists to gain a better understanding of international working and the value of intercultural dialogue. United will be delivered in two parts: part one will be held in Leicester in the UK, and part two will be held in Kristiansand, Norway.
UK Young Artists will select up to five UK-based artists to join four Nordic-based artists, who wish to develop an international career in the arts and culture sector.
United artists will participate in residencies in the UK and Norway. These will take place in Leicester (18-21 June 2019) & Platform Nord, Kristiansand (9-13 October 2019)
United participants will engage in a dynamic programme of events, such as workshops, talks, field-trips, performances, exchanges, one-to-one sessions and discussion groups both in the UK and Norway.
