A one-day conference for the curious at Lumiere 2015 in Durham.
An occasional series of conversations led by Loeb Fellow and creative producer Helen Marriage exploring how cultural events can disrupt daily life and transform our cities.
This cultural symposium was hosted by Artichoke to mark the culmination of Lux Scientia: a successful trans-national alliance across three European light festivals in 2011. Producers and art-makers from around Europe joined us for a series of conversations exploring the future of international artistic collaborations across Europe.
With country-house owners across the land increasingly mounting music festivals and creating sculpture parks as a way of turning a profit, the debate explored whether such events provide a lifeline for our rural populations, or whether they’re nothing more than a blot on the landscape.
The second public conversation about the nature and use of public space in the Sky Arts Artichoke Salon Series.
