'Voices' Season
Critical Voices: Echoes of Genius

Peninsula Arts looks to support new and undiscovered cultural voices, as well as bringing those internationally renowned voices to the region and this is explored in this season’s programme.

This series of talks and films explores how painters, photographers and movie directors reflect critically in their art on the creation, transmission and consumption of images.
