Breakfast Club June series

Breakfast Club is back this June!

Following a highly successful series at the Wheeler Centre during our 2012 Festival, your early morning shot of artistic and intellectual insight is back. Every Wednesday morning for four weeks beginning in June we’ll explore issues that stimulate our artists and creative thinkers as they develop new work.

We’re not interested in expert-led formats or a room full of people thinking the same things; we want big opinions, good discussion and personal stories. And coffee (that’s important). Each event runs for one hour, and will be punctuated by a series of provocations from artists, writers, thinkers and commentators.

Wednesday 12 June 8-9am: How does the shifting media landscape affect what we imagine?
Guest speakers: Kickstart artist Giselle Stanborough, writer Matt Blackwood and radio producer/presenter Jessica Alice
