Part of the LIFT 2018 Weekender
Our Artist Downloads are moments to meet and chat with some of the most exceptionally talented and innovative artists and companies creating contemporary work nationally and internationally. Wake-up to creative conversations around the breakfast table each morning of the Weekender. This is your 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 will also be the LIFT team’s opportunity to meet with you.
Your £10 ticket covers the Artist Downloads discussion plus a coffee and pastry at Ace Hotel, Shoreditch.
