It will comprise three sessions which focus on three key themes of our work – Place, Knowledge, and Materials. Talks will be given by Group members from across the career span and sessions will take different formats of short talks, lectures, and a film screening. Colleagues are warmly invited to join us for the whole Showcase but each session is also ‘stand-alone’ with a 10-minute break between for those only able to drop into some of the morning.
