Time to get your diaries out and your pens at the ready, the BFU Winter Program is here! Brush off your blankets, brew yourself a thermos of tea and prep your thoughtful frowns for a winter of heated conversations and sizzling critique…
Join us every Wednesday evening for the next six weeks of winter for a set of six discussions, workshops, film screenings and interviews. We’ll be meeting each Wednesday at People’s Park in West End (157 Boundary Street) from 6.30pm – 8.30pm. No better way to warm up your winter than with critical theory and cups of tea in an inner-city park. Blankets and provocative ideas will be provided.
