UKYA Biennial: Derby 2010

Artists Work 15.jpg

The first national UK Young Artists event took place across Derby from Thursday 21 until Sunday 24 October 2010. Following an open call for submissions from artists aged between 18 and 30, 75 artists were selected from approximately 400 applications. Although all were based in the United Kingdom, they came from twelve different countries as well as from all across the UK -- from Inverness to Penzance, County Down to East Lothian and Derby itself. They were all cross-art form, including: choreographers, ceramicists, dancers, musicians, video artists, installation artists, painters, performance artists, photographers, sculptors, storytellers, writers and poets.
