Tuatara Open Late: Samuel Flynn Scott, Panel Discussion, and More

2 May 2019

Art, music, film, talks, beer, wine and food. A changing programme of late-night events on the first Thursday of the month.

This month’s Tuatara Open Late line up includes a panel discussion, exhibition tours, a programme of experimental short films, and a live, ticketed performance from Samuel Flynn Scott.

Writer Tim Corballis leads a panel discussion titled ‘The World’s Way of Revealing Itself’, riffing on art, data, science and the ways we view the natural world.
