Culture? York has it in abundance.
And the best of the best is celebrated in the York Culture Awards. Free to enter, there are 15 award categories, open to all. The closing date is September 28.
The winners will be announced at a November ceremony. In the run up to the deadline we are asking York Culture Award judges for their thoughts on the artistic scene in the city.
Today it’s the turn of Lotte Inch who is lead judge in the Outstanding Visual Artist category.
‘We need a new music venue’
York Open Studios also deserves a huge round of applause. It grows bigger and better each year and attracts people from far and wide over the two weekends in April.
I am excited to see how the long-term cultural strategy for the city, which is currently being put together, can shape the future and the inclusion of culture and the arts into the everyday environment in York.
Lotte Inch runs the Lotte Inch Gallery on Bootham, and was curator of Bloom!
