“In the future we will…” is an opportunity for curators Ben Borthwick (recently appointed Head of Creative Programme, KARST) and Paula Orrell (Network Manager, Visual Arts South West) to consider how events of recent months have catapulted us into the future by rewriting norms and assumptions for artists, organisations and audiences about how we can make, present and experience contemporary art.

This panel discussion will use the framework provided by Speedwell - an ACE and Plymouth Culture commission made by artist’s collective Still/Moving in response to the complexity of commemorating the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. Challenging accepted histories, behaviours and knowledge systems offers the possibility in this moment to consider, design and activate ‘new’ forms of ‘worlding’
