5th October: Geoff Lucas on HICA

The Highland Institute for Contemporary Art is in a remote location. It is however resolutely contemporary.
Geoff Lucas, co-founder with Eilidh Crumlish, will describe the process of developing an arts organisation, and the effects of that on his practice as a visual artist.
