The event will take place on Thursday 4th June 2015, 2:30-6:30pm at The Calder, The Hepworth Wakefield

With keynote speaker Leila Johnston, Ringmaster at Sheffield’s Hack Circus

Three teams of academics, creative innovators and PhD students have been working together since March on their challenge to ‘Remix the Gallery’, and on 4th June they will showcase their ideas and thinking at this final Lab event.

Each team will present their response to the challenge, which will be considered by a panel including Lab team members and Simon Wallis, Director of The Hepworth Wakefield.

The key note address is by Leila Johnston, a curator, journalist and entertainer who works with art and technology, and the fantastical ideas that emerge from them.

There will be ample opportunities for discussion and networking fuelled by refreshments and ending with a buffet.
