Part of Into The Wyld at Williamson Art Gallery

This event is part of Weavers, a programme of performances, talks, workshops and readings curated by Dr Silvia Battista as part of Into The Wyld at Williamson Art Gallery. The Weavers program is supported by Liverpool Hope University.

At the end of the exhibition the public is invited to participate in a round table conversation with the artists and the curators of the exhibition together with Dr Catherine Morris, who will moderate it. This will offer the opportunity to both the public and the artists to share ideas and explore further the cultural relevance that the tale of Sir Gawain and The Green Knight have for our complex times.
