New Midland Group - DIY DAY

An afternoon of conversations and activity, which will provide an insight into artist-led activity in Nottingham. Together, we will consider what the artist-led culture of the city is and how this has changed over recent years; what the term artist-led means now, and how we embody it; and, perhaps most importantly, what it will look like in the future.  This event features a talk by art critics, The White Pube who will describe how and why the collaboration began in 2015 and how it continues to grow.

This event has been organised by UKYA with the New Midland Group, a partnership between Backlit, One Thoresby Street and Primary.
