About

Join us for an evening of talks by creatives based within the East Midlands who work on a national and international scale. Our guests Tayler Fisher, Harry Freestone & Kate Robotham will talk us through their recent projects and how they’ve found the opportunities to thrive in the area. To tie in with our current exhibition ‘The Good Life’ our speakers will unpack projects that look at utopia.

Our bar and shop will be open all evening. Tickets are extremely limited. Please note entry is through our back entrance on George’s Yard. Arrive for 18:30, with talks starting from 19:00.

ABOUT OUR SPEAKERS

TAYLER FISHER

MPND Studio Member, Tayler’s work focuses on the idea of distortion, using paint, sculpture and sound to bend, filter and reconstitute images and ideas. Instagram: @tayler__fisher

HARRY FREESTONE

Harry’s work looks at the frustrations we experience as a society as we try to co-exist. Housing design and town planning has divided races, segregate families and created facade ideals. Instagram: @harryfreestoneart

KATE ROBOTHAM

MPND Studio member, Kate’s work uses pattern, layers and colour to find the beauty in the mundane. Instagram: @kate.robotham
