Tell Me Something I Don’t Know
Wednesday 8 July, 6-8pm

We’re trying out our long running talk series Tell Me Something I Don’t Know in an online format! As usual, there’ll be a set of assorted talks and topics from a range of speakers, but this time you’ll be able to watch it live on YouTube.

For this edition of Tell Me Something I Don’t Know, we’ll be welcoming intergenerational speakers who are connected to Nottingham and Primary through their work and activism. The talks will include community photography, learning sign language, race and the workplace, potential futures of communication, and stories from lockdown.

This event will be broadcast live on YouTube from 6pm. The link to the livestream will be shared here and via our social media platforms, so please check back for updates.

We’re also currently releasing our archive of recordings from previous Tell Me Something I Don’t Know events as a weekly podcast – find out more here.


Tell Me Something I Don’t Know is our informal talk series, where an assortment of people speak for 15 minutes each about their hobbies, passions, and interests. These regular events are part of the Making Place programme at Primary, and are co-ordinated by resident artist Rebecca Lee.

The first Tell Me Something I Don’t Know took place at The Commoners’ Fair in November 2016, a day-long event developed by artist Ian Nesbitt at the close of his Ek-uh-nom-iks residency at Primary. Ek-uh-nom-iks explored time banking and community-based skillsharing in Nottingham, and Tell Me Something I Don’t Know responds to questions asked in that residency: ‘What is it that everyone has that they can share? And how do we share it?’
