Barbara Steveni
Artist Barbara Steveni conceived and co-founded the Artist Placement Group in 1966. The concept ‘Artist Placement’ aimed to expand the reach of art and artists into commercial/industrial concerns, government agencies, and organisations of all kinds, at all levels and on a basis equivalent to any other engaged specialist.

Alastair Gentry
Alistair Gentry is an artist and writer whose work includes video, animation, installation, photography, text, and performance. Much of this work involves oratory and storytelling and he regularly collaborates with artists, writers, designers, actors, architects, and scientists both nationally and internationally.

James Early and John Hill are one half of LuckyPDF with Ollie Hogan and Yuri Pattison. Working collaboratively with an expanding network of cultural producers and sometimes reality TV celebrities, LuckyPDF aim to re-negotiate the conditions for the production of art and the spaces that art can exist in.

Elinor Morgan
Elinor Morgan is Artists and Programmes Curator at Wysing Arts Centre—a visual arts research and development centre in Cambridgeshire. Before this, she was Chair of OUTPOST Gallery, an artist-run space in Norwich and has been involved in Turning Point East since its inception.
