About this Event

The Open Lecture Series

The Open Lecture Series is a collaboration between Worcester School of Art’s Fabrication Research Group and Meadow Arts. Some of the most exciting contemporary artists working in the UK and internationally visit Worcester to talk about their artwork, wider research, and processes they use. The talks are hosted at The Art House, accessible to students across the university and members of the public, and are free to attend.

Talks take place on selected Wednesday evenings from 4:30pm to 6:30pm, and include a chance to ask questions after each presentation. The talks are free and open to all: booking is recommended.
