World Event Young
Artists festival launched
in the month the Four Colman Getty team were in Nottingham to help launch
the first ever World Event Young Artists (WEYA). The 10-day
interdisciplinary arts festival invited 1,000 of the best emerging artists
from 100 nations all over the world to the city for the event, which took
place across more than 30 cultural venues and alternative spaces.
Some of the many highlights included literature readings from European and
South American writers at Backlit on Friday, a huge party curated by Gilles
Peterson and including performances by Ayanna Witter-Johnson and Flavio
Renegado at the beautiful Barton’s Bus Depot on Saturday and a spectacular
Mandala performance in the Market Square on Sunday, marking the end to the
Cultural Olympiad in the East Midlands.
