We’re hosting a PANIC! Network artist-led and peer supported double-weekend programme with The Art House, Wakefield.

We’ll be thinking and learning, critiquing and complaining, meeting, listening and chatting – and you’re invited!

The free, four day programme is designed to question artistic practices, share ambitions, artists’ hunches and skills, as well as have a much-needed all-round good time.

Discover the full programme below and book now.

The programme has been brought together by The Tetley and The Art House, and curated by the PANIC! Steering Group – a collection of regional artists and art advisors.
