Description

The Gippsland Centre for Art and Design at Federation University will host a special instalment of the WRITING & CONCEPTS lecture series on Tuesday September 26.

WRITING & CONCEPTS is a public lecture series and publication reflecting on the relationship between the process of writing and the development of social, political and philosophical questions within contemporary arts and cultural practice.
