2 Events / 1 place / 1 night...join Leeds College of Art on the 24th June

2 Events / 1 place / 1 night...
 .... join us on the 24th June to see our End of Year Degree Shows (starts at 5pm) and also hear from this month’s ‘Creative Networks’ guest speaker, Mark McGowan (starts at 6pm).

Creative Networks is excited to welcome the British performance artist, Mark McGowan as its keynote speaker for June.

Mark is noted for eating chunks of Corgi in protest against Prince Philip for hunting foxes and for sitting in a bath of baked beans with chips up his nose and sausages round his head in defence of the full English breakfast. He is often controversial and always extraordinary.

He has crawled the streets of Manhattan dressed up as George W. Bush and rolled a peanut from Goldsmith’s College all the way to Downing Street using only his nose.

A hugely entertaining speaker, this event will be of great interest to anyone working within or across the creative, cultural and digital industry sectors of Yorkshire (and beyond!)
