Place is integral to our concept of the conference. We have been fortunate in being able to access some excellent venues that support our ethos of working class power and creativity. These are all around the centre of Blackburn in East Lancashire.
Our central venue will be the Art Gallery within Blackburn Museum. This beautiful space reflects public ownership, collective endeavour and the importance of using space to generate opportunities to think, learn and create.
We also have the independent Prism Gallery, an exciting venue operated by new artists finding spaces for their work in the margins between institutions.
The spaces offer a gap not defined by convention that we might populate differently and use as a vibrant hub for all our contributions.
