The Breakfast Club is a series of talks events, presented in partnership with the Next Wave Festival, and held at breakfast time: on weekdays at 8am, on weekends at 10am.
We’re interested in how the world and art collide. In a time of intense political confusion, it’s hard to articulate the changes so many want to see. Artistic practice, with its complex arsenal of the subconscious, is well placed to be a key player.
We’re not interested in expert-led formats; we want big opinions, good discussion and
personal stories. And coffee (that’s important).
Each event runs for two hours, and will be punctuated by a series of provocations from artists, key thinkers and our international curators-in-residence.
Arrive at any point. Pull up a chair and a croissant. And dive on in.
We all know something about poverty – its hardship, misery and human toll. In a world where we are saturated with images of the poor and starving, how can we start to see poverty in a way that is meaningful, comprehensive and sensitive to the subject? Does art have a role to play here? With a video camera in every pocket we are increasingly savvy to the way we communicate difficult social issues. So who will rise to the challenge?
