26th October, 7:30 pm.

Sophie Williamson will discuss the intertwined programmes of Camden Arts Centre, including exhibitions, residencies, public programmes and education, and the integral role of artists within these. She will reflect on the changing landscape of contemporary art in London, the problems that artists and arts organisations face, and her current research into the potential of molecular curatorial practices in relation to this.
