Cross Drifts will be our first annual festival and will take place in July and August. This project, which will include a varied range of arts activities presented by pan-Asian arts practitioners, will engage an alliance of artists, academics and think tanks to respond to and debate on. This exchange of presentations, experiences and narratives will inspire the exploration of the diverse globality we live in, serving to challenge the significance that the arts play in defining culture and how this identification impacts on the creation of new art context of a constantly evolving British identity.
