About CArtsCon

CArtsCon-LOGOThe Canterbury Arts Conference (CArtsCon) began life as the Warnborough College Conference on the Arts (WCCA).

Initially, it started as a conference for Warnborough College students, graduates and faculty to present their papers and research. The success of the event has allowed it to grow, with participants coming from different countries and backgrounds.

The definition of ‘arts’ grew with each conference. From just the fine arts and art history during CArtsCon’s inception in 2013, 2014 saw the inclusion of film while 2015 brought in music and theatre into the fold. The decision was then taken to run CArtsCon as an individual non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC).

CArtsCon brings visitors from around Britain and the world to beautiful Canterbury to share knowledge/experience, network and make lifelong friends.
