Singapore Contemporary Young Artists

Playing With & For The Community

World Event Young Artists (SG-UK) Open Call for Filmmakers, Visual Artists & Spoken Word Poets.


What is WEYA?
World Event Young Artists (WEYA) is the first of its kind and will take place in the cultural city of Nottingham, England in September 2012.

This global event will showcase a selection of the best international creative talent, across a spectrum of artforms, in one city, providing an opportunity for 1000 artists from 120 nations to join together and share their creativity on an international platform.

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. Its public programme and web resources will offer space for collaborative development, workshops, debates and symposiums across a mixture of structured and informal settings.

Artists will take part in workshops and symposiums which will be delivered by an exciting range of creative individuals and artform specialists, exclusively tailored for young artists of the 21st century.
This once in a lifetime event will thrive on discussion and collaboration with like minded artistic talents from across the globe and aims to encourage future partnerships.

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.
