Thinking about the cultural future we’re going to make together.
We are really excited to be creating Wild Conference with Arts Council, England.
We’re currently devising a space free of the usual distractions, usual frustrations, usual limitations. A space that encourages new thought, free thought, even we hope wild thought.
A space where all sorts of cultural leaders, thinkers and artists can come together to be inspired by speakers, by discussions, by tasks and by the glorious act of being outdoors and sitting around a bonfire thinking on important things.
That’s right. There’s going to be a bonfire.
We want the Wild Conference to be of wide interest and useful to as many people as possible. To achieve this we asked a Curation Panel to join the project to help think about what will be discussed and who will talk. Details of who is on the Curation Panel are below.
We’re making it now and we expect to be able to share the details with you at the end of January and let you know how to reserve a place.
In the meantime the best way to ensure that you hear about it first is to join this mailing list we’ve created especially and only for the Wild Conference here.

Abigail Greenland: Co-Director Rash Dash.
Natalie Ibu: Artistic Director of Tiata Fahodzi.
