Increasingly, people from all walks of life aspire to be creative in their work and driven by concerns for the physical and virtual communities they inhabit. 

In his lecture, Fergus Linehan will look at how this shift has impacted on arts festivals and events worldwide; how it has opened up extraordinary opportunities while at the same time changing expectations and altering the ways in which festivals are perceived and supported.  

This is an incredible opportunity and hope that you are able to join us.

Doors open at 5.30pm, lecture begins at 6pm 

A drinks reception will follow the lecture at 7pm in the main foyer

This event is free to attend, however, please register your attendance by emailing
