‘Art is the highest form of hope’ - a panel discussion

Updated: Mar 17

UPDATE - 17 MARCH 2020

It is with regret that we have had to postpone a number of fundraising events, including our ‘Art is the highest form of hope’ event at Tate Liverpool, which we hope to reschedule to April 2021. We will be working with our brilliant volunteers to find new ways to support our work in the coming year.

We are aware this is a time of great uncertainty and anxiety for many people. We are doing all we can to keep our life-saving service open and available to the men who need it.

Please also see the information we have shared on looking after ourselves and each other.

James’ Place is pleased to present an event as part of Our Art Project in partnership with Tate Liverpool.

Join us for a panel discussion about how art can bring hope, provide a balm or excite inspiration. Art, in its many forms, can touch us on different levels – a deep or fleeting connection. Our panel will explore these issues drawing on their own artistic practice and personal experience.

Hatty Butler, My Hair is Pink so What?
