The Future Can’t Wait
Artist panel talk, Bath Spa students in Long Gallery
1 Thu 23 March, 6.30pm

There will be an artists’ panel discussion in the Long Gallery featuring MA students who will explain the context of their work.

‘The Future Can’t Wait’ addresses the issue of uncertainty in a time of political, economic and environmental upheaval.  Dr Andrea Medjesi-Jones, course leader on the MA Fine Art course and an artist herself, says: “It is hard to envisage what the future holds or indeed looks like.  Can the future exist at all, and if so when does it start?  There are no easy answers, but one thing is certain – the future can’t wait.”

It promises to be a fascinating discussion and a great chance for young creatives to consider their future within the creative sector.
