Events at this Venue


Canterbury will be playing host to local and international visitors this July as it hosts the 4th annual Canterbury Arts Conference. The theme for this year’s CArtsCon is “Art for Change”. Change is typically seen as making something different, developing it, and/or moving it from one place or state to another. But “change” can also refer to loose coins — the few pennies we have left over — or to money in general.

CArtsCon 2016 will fuse these concepts into a lively debate looking at whether art can drive change or influence moods and minds, if worthwhile art can be created with little money, and how powerful arts movements can be created. In short, how can art change hearts and minds and how does money factor in this?

The conference will take place at the Canterbury Baptist Church and Warnborough College. It is open to artists in all arts disciplines and media, academics, historians, curators, students, researchers, policy makers, and professionals in arts-related fields.
A short film showcase will present selected short films from around the world and there will be a live preview of a new musical based on the life of Christopher Marlowe.

There will also be an art competition for schoolchildren with prizes given out during the welcome reception.
