HARD Magazine and the Norman Rea Gallery are hosting Modern Renaissance: York’s Creative Festival , a five day festival celebrating the arts & culture scene in York. This festival takes inspiration from both the new and older generation of creators, artists and designers as they navigate themselves through the world of contemporary creativity. Modern Renaissance is a display of how local innovation has shaped the city of York and influenced its community - both as a University and as a city.
Through this event and the subsequent environment it will create, we are able to provide students and members with an outlet for their own personal creativity. We welcome everyone to participate, reflect on their understanding of art and be part of a larger creative community.
This will provide students with the opportunity to engage and learn from their local environment and meet with creative professionals. It will entail a wide range of events from the That’s Hot exhibition to the HARD Magazine launch, as well as a poetry night, a fashion show and networking event.
