We are delighted to be working in partnership with the legendary art writer, broadcaster and local Colchester girl, Louisa Buck, to host a series of talks featuring some of the biggest names in art & culture today.

Join Louisa as she chats to key figures in the art world and explores the life, works and artistic practice of a host of exciting artists. Louisa will be posing those burning questions we’ve all wanted to ask – from their biggest inspirations, role models and influences, to how they got to where they are today. In addition, Firstsite Director, Sally Shaw will host a selection of talks – exploring local art and creativity and the artists influenced by the East Anglia landscape, history and people.

All talks will be hosted at Firstsite, as well as online – with a chance for attendees to put their questions to the panel. Lively discussion is guaranteed!

Profits from all talks go straight back into support Firstsite – helping to keep our exhibitions free for everyone and fund community projects like our Holiday Fun programme which provides free art and movement activities and meals to families facing economic challenges
