LDB Sessions

What is the purpose of biennales?

21 Jun 2023 13:00 - 14:00 The Screening Room

With the current socio-economic and environmental climate, what is the future of Biennales? This discussion will look at how cross-sector collaboration can overcome challenges of temporary events, bringing together speakers including the director and artistic director of LDB23.

Can Biennales positively impact both the create and non-creative industries? How can these events and design-led thinking foster new local, national and global collaboration strategies in order to tackle our most pressing issues?
