NUART PLUS SYMPOSIUM

Our annual series of artist talks, panel debates, film screenings, workshops and more takes place from 31 August - 3 September 2017.
This year's Nuart Plus symposium is dedicated to exploring ‘power’: who has it, who doesn’t and how sanctioned and unsanctioned street and public art can challenge prevailing mechanisms of control.
All events are free, unless stated otherwise on the program.
