Performance Lecture Series 2017-18

Organised by the Centre for Practice-Based Research in the Arts, this series of lectures aims to blur the boundaries between the formal lecture and artistic performance, offering both creative practitioners and academics the opportunity to experiment with new ways of presenting their ideas and their work.
