A full events programme has been created to accompany Leo Robinson's solo exhibition, The Infinity Card which is in our gallery until 16 April 2023. Read more about The Infinity Card here.
We have a series of films that will immerse you in Afrofuturism, ritual practices, non-linear time and altered psychological states - asserting different ways to reimagine our pasts and futures.
Alongside the film series, we're hosting a reading group to read Shola von Reinhold's exquisite debut novel LOTE. Join us over the course of 5 weeks to read the novel and come together to reflect, to think and learn, not only from what we'll be reading but from each other.
