Building on last year’s intimate and inspirational gatherings, a line-up of leaders, teachers and emerging talent from the worlds of advertising, music, film and beyond are preparing to let you in on their successes, obsessions, weaknesses and wonky bits.
And whilst our heads fill to the temples with stories and conversation, our ears, eyes and appetites won’t be left behind.
We’re inviting the bands, bookshops and street food wizards the Art Wednesday community deserves to see, hear, taste and experience.
