As we countdown to Future Proof, our latest event in partnership with Arnolfini, we wanted to share the latest version of the programme. We'll be joined by some amazing artists, curators, directors and performers throughout the day who will share insights and thoughts on the future of visual arts and how we can support positive change.
This event on 20th September 2019 is unfortunately fully booked, however if you aren't attending, you can see a few of the talks on the day by following us on Instagram. If you want to join in with any of the discussions, please share your thoughts by using #FutureProofVASW on Twitter or Instagram. We will also be providing podcasts and visuals as a follow up.
Download or print the latest version of the programme here. Please note that to keep the environmental effects of this event to a minimum, we will only have a handful of programmes printed on the day, so please download a copy of this programme to your mobile device.
