Activities

The dates for all events organised by the Imprints of the New Modernist Editing have now been finalised. Please note  that all expenses for participants, including UK travel, catering, and accommodation if required, will be covered. We hope to attract wide range of participants: those with a professional background in art, printmaking, editing, writing, or any other related practices are welcome, but we are equally glad to welcome those with no professional experience.
