Two artists share their individual perspectives on digital exclusion, continuing this series of one-to-one livestreams as part of our VisualiSE programme.

Nancy Odufona and Liz Wilson (both from East Sussex) will discuss, take questions, and share some advice from their own experience.

In what ways have digital skills become increasingly essential for artists to promote and pursue their practice? How does digital exclusion affect audiences and students as programmes migrate online? How does this intersect with financial hardship or specific disabilities?

Open Source is a series of livestream events addressing key issues currently impacting the arts sector through an open discussion with artists and art workers.
