The HUB is the heart of audiograft, bringing audiences, artists and audiografters together for pre-gig activities and post-gig drinks.
You’ll find a filming masterclass, a sound & poetry workshop, a pub quiz, and our handy Sound Art Surgeries and of course, the chance to just relax and chat with a drink in your hand.
Every evening WED 07/03 – SAT 10/03 we’ll be at the Front Room of Turl Street Kitchen, for POST-GIG drinks, a chat and a little wind-down. Do come along.
All the audiograft HUB events are FREE and open to all.
