We are delighted to be hosting the IMPACT 12 multidisciplinary printmaking conference, 21 – 25 September 2022.
We appreciate the pandemic may still have a firm grip on some countries, and many will be coping with the after-effects. As a result, we are planning a hybrid conference, that you can attend in person in Bristol or online. We propose this event and conference to have a therapeutic function, focusing on listening to each other’s voices.
Calls for participation are open and there are many ways that you can take part!Find out more
