The annual GLAMFA panels have provided an excellent platform for artists and creative professionals within the spheres of cultural production to exchange ideas with each other and the panel audience. Unlike standard artist’s lectures, the GLAMFA panel serves as a genuine and somewhat less formal avenue for discussion between peers. This allows for insight into pertinent cultural themes, concerns among contemporary artists, and legitimate working challenges facing the next generation of artists. Panel Discussion at Hall of Science (HSCI 105): 3 – 4:30pm :
