Is there a cost to attend this?

No, it's FREE! And as far as I know you don't have to register, so just turn up on the day :)

I just received an email with new information regarding the Symposium timetable and speakers, so I've updated this post.

It is late notice, but would be great opportunity for NZ printmakers to hear from a diverse range of speakers, to interact with others in our network, and to discuss what is happening in printmaking around Aotearoa.
