Artist Talk: Daniel Trivedy

6 December
Open from 6pm, talk starts at 6:30pm

Recent Eisteddfod Gold Medal winner Daniel Trivedy will talk about his practice and research processes.
‘I am interested in our psychological relationship to each other. What are the origins, ramifications and consequences of these relationships? How are these relationships changing in an increasingly connected world where people have different views of the future? Fundamentally, I am interested in the glue that holds us together but also that which keeps us apart.’

Warp Workshop – Writing Applications

4th December
2pm – 5pm

A seminar on ‘writing applications’ for opportunities. We want to think about structure of information, writing clearly, ambition and confidence, and a little about work examples. There are no perfect answers, and all opportunities are different, but we can all learn something from sharing ideas, approaches and experience.
This event is for artists and curators at any career stage.
Places are limited (20 max). Booking essential.
Booking details coming soon…
