Join a walking, talking, drawing and storytelling workshop in and around UCL's campus. In this workshop led by architectural designer & artist Antoinette Yetunde Oni, participants will envision temporary urban interventions to explore how to create climate resilient cities. Drawing inspiration from a mix of local and global case studies, including the work of guest speakers Lauren Andres (Bartlett School of Planning) and Helen Pineo (Bartlett School of Environment, Energy & Resources), participants will make observations, exchange knowledge and create new mixed media artworks using techniques shared by Antoinette Yetunde Oni.   

Antoinette Yetunde Oni is an artist whose work addresses resource degradation, migration and climate injustice in the Global South through speculative collage and assemblage.

Free. Places limited, book in advance online.
