  • Artist Downloads

    Part of the LIFT 2018 Weekender

    Ace Hotel, Shoreditch

    This event has now passed.

    Our Artist Downloads were moments to meet and chat with some of the most exceptionally talented and innovative artists and companies creating contemporary work nationally and internationally. This was a moment to connect with LIFT’s 2018 artists; ask them about their practice, what motivates them, what keeps them passionate, what challenges have they faced and what’s next? Artist Downloads were also the LIFT team’s opportunity to meet with our audience.
