On 28 and 29 March 2017 a diverse range of contributors spoke to themes relevant to issues facing us all, with time allocated for delegates to self-organise discussion, network and reflect on the formal contributor sessions.

No Boundaries’ conference format live-linked two venues as one conference. Landmark Manchester arts hub HOME was partnered with Hull Truck Theatre, with the event forming part of the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 programme. By providing the conference over two locations, numbers were limited in each space to allow for an informal atmosphere where discussion, networking and some innovative, entertaining surprises were integral to the event.

Contributors were split between both sites. Broadcast quality technology was employred to stream all the provocations between the sites. Everything was streamed live as fully accessible broadcasts through the No Boundaries website, immediately available for playback for delegates and the digital audience.
