We were honoured to be invited to Vilnius by the Creative Europe Desk and the Lithuanian Council for Culture.

Our Director Lucy Kerbel spent three days in Vilnius in April. She met with senior cultural figures at an event hosted at Infoteka, the city’s performing arts library and was a keynote speaker at the Gender Equality Forum held at the National Library of Lithuania.

It was great to have the opportunity to present on Tonic’s work across the UK. Lucy spoke about the approach we have taken, the impact that has had, and the shifts that this has led to over the last decade. At Tonic we’re always keen to deepen out connections with colleagues and peers across Europe so Lucy was incredibly pleased to spend time meeting and learning about the situation for our Lithuanian counterparts.
