Event Details

What do artists do? What space do they need to do it? What would a National Open Studios look like?

23 October

Artists' studios are fascinating places. Our annual Open Studios is a celebration of the huge range of creative activity happening at East Street Arts studios and spaces in Leeds and across the country.

As part of the festivities, and in response to our ongoing research, we are inviting artists, creative thinkers, organisations and businesses to join us for a day of discussion, interrogation and discovery. We invite you to come and participate, listen, challenge, observe, add to discussions and make sure everyone has a good time!

A public call out for interventions has resulted in a varied and exciting day addressing ideas of the artist's studio as a place to work and the notion of Open Studios on a National Scale. With contributions from Artist Union England, Wasps Artists' Studios and East Street Arts Members from across the country, the day promises to be a platform for fresh thinking on the topics covered and, we hope, the start of a wider conversation. 

Our 'pay what you can' tickets aim to make this an accessible event. Some catering is included in our approach to hospitality, but you may want to bring along a snack for lunch. The end of the symposium, and our opening event for Open Studios, will be at Barkston House, an East Street Arts studio facility in Holbeck, Leeds. Transport to and from the venue and hot food will be offered.
