Throughout Grayson Perry's exhibition, we are delighted to welcome Nikesh Shukla as writer-in-residence. During the autumn, Nikesh will be producing new work, exploring themes around Brexit, British values and the idea of a nationalism that celebrates all of us, especially in a city like Bristol, built on the legacy of slavery. Join us for a reading of the work followed by a conversation between Nikesh and invited guests.
