How can museums - especially those with colonial collections - be spaces for radical climate action? Join artist Bryony Benge-Abbott & architect John Zhang to explore the Grant Museum Collections through a drawing, making and discussion workshop. 

Take part in a creative workshop that draws from UCL’s collections. Following an introduction by Rodney Harrison (UCL Institute of Archaeology) architect John Zhang will share his work that imagines the decolonisation and rewilding of museum spaces. Take part in a hands-on workshop that explores this allegory within UCL’s collections and reflect on your ideas through a drawing workshop led by artist Bryony Benge Abbott
