Our Falmouth School of Art Guest Speaker programme provides Falmouth University students with a unique opportunity to hear from established and high profile artists and practitioners from a range of backgrounds. We are also pleased to offer a limited number of seats for each event to the public, friends of Falmouth School of Art, our alumni, schools and colleges.
Guest speakers have included Cornelia Parker, David Shrigley, Gavin Turk, Ben Rivers, Denzil Forrester, Deanna Petherbridge, Deborah Levy, Lindsay Seers, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye and Michael Salu.
These events are free, but registration is always required through the Falmouth School of Art Eventbrite page
