CROSSING BOUNDARIES : THE RIGHT TO ROAM

27th Novenber, 2015

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.
