About artevents

artevents was established by producer Di Robson in 1997 to create and deliver major cultural projects. In 2004 Gareth Evans joined as co-director and in 2005 they produced the major London mixed-media festival John Berger: Here Is Where We Meet (johnberger.org).

artevents seeks to explore the role of the arts in a rapidly changing cultural, technological, social, political and ecological landscape, with a particular interest in multi-culturalism, justice, responses to place and experimental culture.

artevents supports innovative and imaginative collaborations between artists, artforms and technologies, alongside fresh approaches to public engagement.
