This week’s Unlimited Festival at London’s Southbank Centre may be a different entity to us, the Unlimited commissions programme (find out more about the distinction here), but will be showing a lot of the work we’ve commissioned and supported which you can catch between 6-11 September. Read on for a day-by-day run-through of what we have a hand in and where, hopefully, you can meet us in person! Don’t forget to let us know what you think of our work at the festival by tweeting @weareunltd with your thoughts.
