Submerge is back!

The Submerge strand of the event is aimed at young, new and emerging artists looking to create and display artwork on a public platform through a mentored commission in collaboration with the East Riding Visual Arts Uplift.

The experience allows artists to go through all the elements of concept to creation with the support of the event management, production teams and further contractors where required to ensure the piece is showcasing the best the artist has to offer.

Helen Yates, Burning Lights Arts

Precious and Found is a series of birdcages, some hung, others freestanding, all chosen to house selected, single objects, enshrined and splayed as modern day curiosities. Objects will be chosen, modified or made, reflecting the historical and present day East Riding. The collective cages, of various sizes and shapes will stimulate curiosity and encourage people to peer in and discover for themselves what these object might be or mean.
