For the Curiously Minded...

Following the success of last year’s Hammersmith and Fulham ArtsFest Finale, hosts Anjan Saha and Nina Joshi Ramsey return with a rare opportunity to be up close and personal with a stellar array of guests across disciplines. Listen in as they explore mind-altering blind spots, challenges, and hopes around access to being in the Arts, as faced by Artists - perspectives range across finances, identity, location, disability, age, class, gender, art form, subject matter, culture, society, etc. Ask questions, share your thoughts, and have some ‘Aha’ moments The evening will be interspersed with live music, showcase performances and comedy, for a winning Festival Finale! Expect, at times, irreverent, humorous and philosophical searches for deeper and maybe brutal truths, and possibly even solutions to unseen challenges. This event continues a series of hothouse thinking towards better community cohesion. Join us at the Bush Theatre Garden before and after the event, to engage with the activities and discussion topics and meet people from across the H&F Arts Festival.
