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.
Look after people, or look after planet? Is climate change something that only those who can afford it can think about? Perhaps this extreme context is something we must learn to live within, and can it be seen as fertile ground for artists and creatives to consider our personal, social and civic humanity?
