Our series of Stars on Starting Out talks are aimed at under- and post-graduates, emerging and progressing artists, makers and creative businesses, and anyone with an interest in visual arts, architecture and design. Taking place throughout October, guest speakers include sculptural artist Alex Chinneck, multimedia artist Jessica Voorsanger, Paul Simmons of design studio Timorous Beasties.
Each guest speaker will be introduced by a local artist, maker or designer and the talks will be webcast to a wider audience.
