So what is the Art Conference then? The Arts Conference is happening this weekend here in London, According to the press release The Art Conference is a Two-day festival full of art, culture and technology”

“The Art Conference is a two-day festival for art, tech and culture professionals held on the 23rd and 24th of July, brings together 18+ international keynote speakers, artists and thought leaders to debate across a series of seminars, panel discussions and interactive exhibitions. We are creating a platform to discuss, connect and engage with contemporary art from a fresh perspective”

Not sure what a “culture professional” actually is.likewise “thought leaders” but hey, keep an open mind, there’s certainly some decent art involved this coming weekend… .
