Introduction to the AV 2016 Festival

Published in Cultural Commentary

Chi Onwurah MP, Shadow Minister for Culture, introduced the International AV Festival in the North East with this address.

I’m delighted to be here at the Mining Institute, Newcastle, one of my favourite buildings in the city, built by engineers for engineers, and now enjoyed by everyone. As an engineer myself that is a particular pleasure. And I should also add that its great to have two women up here, speaking, contrasting and competing with all the portraits of men that hang around us.
