31 January 2013 3:00pm - 4:00pm

A £1 million initiative for new site-specific commissions across the UK.

 

An Open event is being hosted by Leeds Art Gallery, Yorkshire with Artangel and BBC Radio 4. It is an opportunity for artists to hear about the open invitation for artists to come forward with ground-breaking project proposals which will transform the UK’s cultural landscape.

If you're a visual artist, filmmaker, writer, composer, theatre maker, choreographer, producer or an artist working in the digital space, this is your opportunity to hear about the opportunities Open offers.  

Meet with Artangel's Co-Directors, James Lingwood and Michael Morris, Artangel Producer Rob  Bowman and Artist Roger Hiorns and start to think about what Open could mean to you. 

Drinks will be provided and there will be a chance to talk informally with ourselves and the Artangel team after an initial presentation and discussion.  

This event is free but please reserve a space in advance at city.art.gallery@leeds.gov.uk or call 0113 247 8256 so we know you're coming.
