    DACS' Annual Lecture

    Join us for DACS' inaugural Annual Lecture featuring Turner Prize-nominated artist Anthea Hamilton talking on this year's evocative theme, A Space for Thought

    It’s rare to find the time to simply stop and think. 

    Technology, time, money and even politics can stop us from pausing to look inwards. Perhaps we’re scared of what we might find? This is precisely what we have asked multi-media artist Anthea Hamilton to do.

    Join us on Monday 24 September at 7pm to hear her thoughts.

    Tickets are £7 (£5 for concessions).

    Can't join us on the day? Sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about future events.

    About the speaker

    Anthea Hamilton is a Turner Prize-nominated artist who in 2017 became the first black woman to be awarded a commission to create a work for Tate Britain's Duveen Galleries, The Squash.

    Working across sculpture, installation and performance she is interested in the complexity of ways in which we read and respond to images.
