This week, my guest is the fantastic Ruta Skudraite.
Ruta is a Manchester-based curator and founder of Art Vanguard. With a background of classical piano, Ruta has been part of various creative projects as a performer – from interactive audiovisual installation on human condition (Vilnius Culture Night, Lithuania) to building a European cabaret show in French Alps (FestiFai Veynes, France). Ruta has launched Art Vanguard in 2013 to provide a platform for artists to explore cross-artform creative collaboration, and this year Art Vanguard will be curating the Free For Arts Festival at Plant Noma in Northern Quarter on Saturday 3 March.
I’ll be talking to Ruta about this year’s Free For Arts Festival, about Art Vanguard, and about creative collaboration generally. And, of course, Ruta will be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
