There are a number of concerts and storytelling events - The Curator's Symposium (12 July) is an invitation by the committee to the current year's curator to initiate a topic for discussion that affects the work of artists in the area. It is an opportunity for professional development for artists and curators and in fact any member of the public that is interested. This year, the subject of the symposium is connectivity and how networks can help artists in keeping with the theme set by curator for Cley 17 Maz Stuart.
