In order to develop links between artists based in London and the Northwest, Artquest and Castlefield Gallery are inviting artists to participate in a seminar discussion on the relationship between art in London and the rest of the UK. The panel of speakers have been selected because of their experiences of working across the UK: they include Manchester artist Nick Crowe; Becky Shaw who has recently moved from Liverpool to London via Cambridge; and London-based artists Andrew Cross and Olivia Plender, who also exhibit widely across the UK.

Please note that this opportunity is by invitation only. No submissions accepted.
