Open Scores Lab programme for 2017-18

We are pleased to announce the visitors for the 2017-18 labs following on from our first series in 2016-17. Each lab is on the first Wednesday of the month in term time from 12-4pm, and features a visiting speaker alongside presentations by staff and PhD students from Bath Spa. The lab is a mix of theory and practice, and we often try out work in progress.
