The day will include individual speakers, as well as a performance and panel discussion, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

The Hard Wired exhibition is a partnership between Chrysalis Arts Development and Outside In. There will be time in the day to visit Whitby Library and see the exhibition.

Panel members including Phil Baird, Lucy Barker, Jenny McCarthy and Ian Sherman
