As I know about events I am participating in, I’ll post information about them here 🥳
A Bold Critique
I will also be facilitating a discussion as part of the Bold Festival. Join us for a timely conversation about arts criticism and its place in the sector. What are the responsibilities of a critic? Who are they writing for? What kind of criticism does the sector need? Who should be offering it? Award winning arts writers and critics Dr Michelle Potter, AM and I (😺) will navigate these issues followed by an open discussion with the audience.
When 📆 : 5:00-6:15pm, 8th March 2024
Where 📍: National Film and Sound Archive
Cost 💰: It's free! But you do need to register.
