Response Time is an evening that draws inspiration from the artists and communities being honoured at the 2016 Gala and presents new art installations and performances provoked by their work.
The identity of the “responders”, who they are responding to and in what way will be kept secret from the audience and, indeed, from the award-winners themselves until they are revealed on the evening of the gala.
