The Lancashire Arts Exchange will return this Autumn for its seventh year, from Friday 17th September – Friday 1st October 2021, coinciding with Lancashire Encounter, the county’s annual celebration of Lancashire’s cultural offer.
This year’s programme will take place both online and offline as we continue to explore the issues and innovations impacting arts and culture.
Themed Augmented Creativity, with a focus on Arts & Tech, we’ll be hosting a series of panels, guest speakers, and public dialogues alongside a programme of digital artworks and interventions exploring how artificial intelligence and new technologies are challenging and enhancing how artists and audiences, make and share art, and access and participate in the arts.
Normally, we charge a small fee for attending the Lancashire Arts Exchange, but in light of the difficult 18 months we’ve all experienced, access to all events online and in person will be completely free this year.
Full details of the Lancashire Arts Exchange 2021 programme and commission announcements will be available on our website and Twitter channel soon.
