Heather Phillipson
& Holly Davey

20 August 2021

Join Heather Phillipson and Holly Davey for a relaxed online teatime discussion about work, life and the places we find ourselves.

Heather joined Holly during her exhibition at g39, The Conversation in 2017 in a talk. With so many changes in the last few years, in the world as well as within their own practices, we revisit that ongoing ‘conversation’ between them both.
