    I was meaning to write this post when we got the photos from the launch of East of Elsewhere, the new art space our Co-Founder Clemmie opened with a show by Rob Blake, dedicated to addressing the growth of the far right globally, but today shit hit the fan. And I’m gonna curse all through …

  • We’re all in this together.

    Though being a big (and rather complicated) topic, the Arts Rights Justice Forum 2017 felt very intimate and well catered to an audience focussed within the worlds of art and culture.
