 The International Culture of Arts Network Conference — Changing Place — kicked off to a good start, opening with a variety of speakers who address current political issues surrounding Northern Ireland at present. The conference was an opportunity for speakers and artists of many forms to come together and examine how the arts challenge the people and place of Derry-Londonderry and other conflict/post-conflict cities around the world, drawing inspiration from national and international practices.
