Description

This roundtable is part of the One-Day Symposium on Criticism organised by the Platform: The Journal for Theatre and Performing Arts. The event is co-sponsored by Royal Holloway and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London.

We will engage artists, critics, and academics in conversation with each other to add to the day's rich discussion on critical practices and art-making.

Join us for an inspiring and productive discussion.

Followed by a free wine reception.
