Kirsten Andrews, Property Development Service Manager

Kirsten Andrews will moderate David Trubridge’s closing session:

So Far
David Trubridge, Closing Speaker


David will examine the idea of a sense of place from the perspective of an artist. He will base this on his personal experience gained from extensive travels, mostly in the more remote and empty parts of the world. Having shown how, in the past, different cultures have expressed this through their art and their craft, he will then go on to look at why this is even more important to us now in an increasingly homogeneous world, especially as regards to sustainability.
