Curator Picks

Each year the LFA works with a Curation Panel to help shape the direction of that year’s festival.

The Panel bring a range of backgrounds and experiences to the festival. This year’s panel selected the theme of ‘care’ from the many theme proposals we received. Here the panel select their top ‘curator picks’ from this year’s festival programme. Over the coming weeks they’ll be sharing the reasons behind their choices, and what they’re most looking forward to in the festival, via the LFA Views Pages.
