Celebrating Creative Selby
Creative Selby, the networking organisation for creative professionals living and working in Selby District put together an exhibition at Selby Town Hall on the weekend of 7th August. Friday evening saw around 60 invited guests, including local Town and District Councillors, Arts professionals and John Grogan Labour MP for Selby District who were given the opportunity to speak to the artists and learn a little about the creative practitioners in the area. A number of presentations were given by selected organisations as well as a musical performance by Alan Cuckston.
The event was open to the public on Saturday 8th.
There was a good turn out and people were genuinely interested and enthusiastic. I received a great deal of positive feedback and encouragement from taking part. I hope events of this type will be repeated in the future as anything that raises the profile of the creative businesses in the area is worth pursuing.
