CROSSING BOUNDARIES: THE RIGHT TO ROAM
Friday 27 November 2015, 18.00 – 20.00
The North East hosts one of the most successful formats of Venice Agendas, a speed-dating event where there is no audience, only participants. There are thirty pre-set questions where those involved consider cultural, social and personal identity, boycotts and issues of migration – one and half minutes to engage and network with artists, collectors, curators and gallery directors.
