For the Liverpool launch of A-Frame, we have invited prominent creative or corporate businesspeople who have both a public profile and are genuinely inspirational to a wide audience to give a “Figures of Speech” presentation – a short, sweet (5 min max) talk around one carefully chosen object. The object could literally be anything but should be something that crystallizes what drives the presenters creative practice, what their business or creativity stands for, or simply what has inspired them the most. The presentations begin at 7pm and will be followed by a drinks reception at the Bluecoat.
This event is building on our 200 strong London based A-Frame members, we are aiming to expand our network to include creatives all over the UK, if you are interested in membership then don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to join the A-Frame network, please
