Another chance to see the films by Italian artist Marinella Senatore for her York Symphony piece, created through a series of workshops and conversations, collecting individual stories from the communities in York. We love the image of the little ballerina on the rusty old Arts Barge prior to the recent conversion work.
Well-known in Europe and the US for her collaborative process of making new artworks through public participation, Senatore uses a range of media including video, collage and text to allow her projects to speak within a range of contexts.
York Symphony was commissioned by York Museums Trust (York Art Gallery), supported by a grant from a York family through the Friends of York Art Gallery, 2017. Many thanks to York Art Gallery who have loaned the films for this event.
This is a 'Pay what you Feel' event on the door.
Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.
Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities.
In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
