SLAPchat is at The Distance, 52 Skeldergate, York YO1 6DS
Wed Jan 28 @ 6pm-9.30pm
Artists and creative types are getting together to talk about how to improve live arts in York – and anyone who’s interested is invited along.
SLAPchat takes place on Wednesday evening (January 28) and is a free forum to discuss the state of York’s creative industries.
Among its open discussions are…
the state of York’s creative scene
ways in which arts organisations and media can further promote local talent, and
how we can do more to sell York as a cultural hub to a regional, national and international audience.
Or, as the organisers put it:
SLAPchat will feature talks from a number of individuals with an involvement in live arts and the creative industries in York, including representatives from documentary and dance film production company alterNative Pictures, trans-Atlantic music industry start-up Ishikawa Records, and our good selves at YorkMix.
There will be live performances and the SLAP team will draw on their own experience to support the debate.
