Nikesh Shukla In Conversation
Event type: 
Thursday, November 16, 2017 -
19:00 to 20:30

Nikesh Shukla presents outcomes from his residency at Arnolfini.

Throughout Grayson Perry's exhibition, we are delighted to welcome Nikesh Shukla as writer-in-residence.

During the autumn, Nikesh will be producing new work, exploring themes around Brexit, British values and the idea of a nationalism that celebrates all of us, especially in a city like Bristol, built on the legacy of slavery.

Join us for a reading of the work followed by a conversation between Nikesh and invited guests.
