Giant Step 2 (The Centre of the Periphery & The Periphery of the Centre)

Hosted by MOSTYN, this conference looks at the role of institutions within contemporary culture. We bring together artists, curators, creative practitioners and others to discuss and debate how institutions or individuals stimulate and encourage the cultural dynamics of a location or society, particularly in areas with a less prominent critical audience.

Speakers include: Annie Fletcher (Van Abbemuseum), Fernando Garcia-Dory (artist and activist), James Green (Director, Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange), Michele Horrigan (artist and Director of Askeaton Contemporary Arts), Alistair Hudson (Grizedale Arts), John Plowman and Nicola Streeten (Directors, Beacon Art Project), Pete Telfer (Culture Colony).
