No Boundaries 2015 took place on 29-30 Sept 2015
at Home Manchester and Watershed Bristol
No Boundaries is the industry conference for the Arts, museums and libraries, with a focus on presenting questions and challenging new ideas on the role of arts and culture, finding positive approaches to influence change and supporting the sector’s growth in a world of unknowns.
Over 400 delegates from across the Arts and culture sector attended No Boundaries, which took place at Watershed Bristol and HOME Manchester. The venues were provided a live-linked to seamlessly broadcast talks between both spaces and onto the web. No Boundaries prioritises access so that all can take part.
The two-day format allowed time for self organised discussion, networking and reflection around five formal contributor sessions. An array of national and international contributors spoke to five themes relevant to issues facing the industry:
Can we exercise freedom of expression?
Are we nurturing tomorrow’s talent?
How does the money flow?
Can we do things differently?
What does success look like?
“If you don’t like something, change it.
If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
