Art Lab at Dean Clough had our festive party which had a different format to usual. Usually I programme 3-4 speakers/presentators with Q&A each but for the social festive party I invited everyone to bring a bottle/dish and some art that they had made or were inspired by. Lots of people brought their own work and we had a great time finding out about their work more informally then stand-up presentations. Robert Donald brought The Man Who Planted Trees (1987) which is stunning https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KTvYh8ar3tc
Some feedback after the evening included maybe this relaxed/social format is something to incorporate regularly. Food for thought!
