From Stanley Spencer and Chila Kumari Burman to Rachel Whiteread and Michael Armitage, Slade School of Fine Art has educated and trained generations of world-renowned artists since 1871.

Celebratory events will range from a Slade 150 symposium series to exhibitions in the UCL Octagon Gallery and UCL Art Museum, leading up to a landmark anniversary moment in the summer of 2022. All events will seek to engage in critical conversations around access, inclusion and the future of art education.
