Chaired by Dr Jo Applin, a specialist in modern and contemporary art and lecturer at The Courtauld , The discussion will investigate the use of technology in the work of contemporary female artists. 

Alongside Sarah Alagroobi, a student whose work is exhibited in the SURGE show will be the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Artist in Residence Rachel Ara who’s work draws on her extensive career as a Computer Systems Designer. Awarded to pioneering artists working in technology, Rachel is a Near Now Fellow who will provide a key insight into what it means to be a woman artist creating and leading in this field. Katy Hessel, founder of the Great Women Artists Instagram account, which now has a staggering 18k followers and counting, will be bringing her expertise to the panel on the importance of celebrating past, present and future women artists.
