Free!  Everyone welcome!  

For the last 40-plus years, artists have relied on an ecosystem of Artist Run Centres, public galleries and private galleries to support their practice. Over this span of time the centres and galleries and the needs of artists and artists' communities have modified with the external environment. Have we grown together or have we  grown apart? Join Sheila Spence for a frank discussion regarding the role and future of our sector.
