The Lincoln Creates Network (LCN) brings together and celebrates the breadth of critical and applied creative practices in Lincolnshire. The Lincoln Creates Network + Artist Talk series, is designed to support local creative professional development, peer learning and networking as well as critical conversation and debate. The programme creates space for local artists and creative practitioners to share opportunities, creative expertise and developments within their own work, as well as hear from nationally and internationally established artists who have been welcomed to the city.
