WYC meet Cornelia Parker

Cornelia Parker was at the Whitworth last week for the launch of her new artwork Magna Carta (An Embroidery) WYC were thrilled to meet her and chat with her about how important the arts is for young people AND for the economy. Cornelia talked about how the creative industries are one of the biggest growth economies in the country, how art changed her life (her father had wanted her to work in a factory) and gave us lots of encouragement with pursiung our own artistic passions in whatever form they may take. Thumbs up to the next generation and thanks Cornelia for the snap chats!
