World Event Young Artists 2012 (WEYA) is the first event of its kind, bringing together and celebrating some of the best creative talent from across the world. 1000 artists aged 18-30 from 120 countries will come to Nottingham for 10 days, bringing the city to life with creative activity across all art forms. The World Event will be a chance for international exchange on a global scale, bringing the city to life; it is as much about intercultural dialogue across political borders as it is about the practice of young artists. This unique combination of factors will ensure an unforgettable experience for all who take part and its audiences. World Event Young Artists 2012 is hosted by UK Young Artists and supported by Arts Council England, Cultural Olympiad East Midlands, Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham City Council.
