With its meeting rooms, gallery spaces and other specialist spaces available to hire, Art Gene regularly provides a venue for touring events/music festivals/film screenings/employment fairs. Over the years we have also hosted our own programme of seminars to accompany events and exhibitions or to inform our research into revisioning the social, natural and built environment.
