There will also be talks from creative studio Wade & Leta; illustrator Laura Callaghan; theatre and events collective THISISPOPBABY; photojournalist Sean Murphy, who collaborated with PJ Harvey on Let England Shake and The Six Hope Demolition Project, and Lisa Bolan, a creative director who has worked on titles and motion graphics for cult films and TV shows, including The Sopranos, Six Feet Under and Captain Marvel.
