Laura Evans is the Communications and Audience Development Manager at UK New Artists (formerly UK Young Artists), a company focused of providing support and opportunities for over-18 artists within the first 10 years of their professional practise. We sit down and talk about Laura’s role at UKNA, alongside the incredible opportunities they offer: from their weekenders and city takeovers to their UK Artist of Year Award and engagement with the Saatchi Gallery.

This episode was also recorded prior to UK Young Artists’ rebranding, now UK New Artists, hence the names being slightly different between the recording and titles.
