On Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 February, you are invited to join three live events in Tramway to consider some of the themes of Amartey’s work. These include a talk by the artist himself (see more details below).

With limited capacities, early booking is strongly recommended.

All events are free but ticketed. Transaction fees will apply to online bookings and phone bookings (£1.50 online, £1.75 by phone).
