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.
No experience necessary. This event is free. Places are limited, book in advance online.
This event is part of UCL’s climate campaign ‘Generation One’. Together we are the new generation taking responsibility for climate action and turning science into actionable ideas.
