Its that summertime again, and what a brilliant early start to summer we've had in the British Isle this April. Anyways, the annual Develop Brighton comes once again this mid-July and one of the main attraction for the creatives is the Keynote Art track by Ian McCaig - who is well reknown for visually and sonically engaging story driven lectures and anaecdotes of wisdom to last one's entire career. That's how impactful Ian's onstage persona can be.
In any regard, we hope we get to meet likeminded creatives for a good jaunt down at the Hilton Brighton on July 20th and have a good one!
