Chaired by Dr. Harriet Riches, Head of the Art School at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU), speakers include Emma Smith and Jo Chapman – artist-in-residence for the forthcoming Cromwell Road development and artist commissioned for Ironworks respectively – and Veronique Chance, artist and lecturer at ARU.
