ACJ's 20:20 Visions Conference was held on 7 - 9 July in Sheffield

Speakers included Boris Bally (USA), Elizabeth Shaw (Australia), Melissa Cameron (USA), Johanna Zellmer (NZ / Germany) Simon Fraser (UK) and many more!

Our conference team, led by Laura Bradshaw-Heap (of Suspended in Pink fame) and Rachel Darbourne (JUNK: Rubbish to Gold), worked hard to construct a great and varied programme. This included talks by makers, educators & exhibition curators, performances (expect surprises), demonstrations and tech talks amid networking breaks with plentiful cake.
