Alias Hubs at SVA
Alias Hub meet Friday 28 January 11am
Alias Hubs function as a focus for a network between artists and artist groups. The hubs aim to be an informal place to meet where interests can be
profiled and discussed. This meeting at SVA will be the first of a series of regular Friday morning coffee breaks.
A programme of seminars are planned each year, organised by artists in direct response to the needs and current issues. Alias often acts as a contact point
and conduit for an exchange of information on issues relating to artist led activity. To find out more about the other Alias Hubs in Bristol and Cornwall, past seminars, the current and future programme visit www.aliasarts.org
