Arts and Culture:
Creative Writing Workshop at Keats House - Finishes Friday
Join their recently appointed Poet in Residence, Anthony Hett, for a 'drop in' poetry writing session where you will use photos of yourself or images of Keats as prompts for your writing. In September, Anthony will host a special event to share the work that he has written during his residency and encourage new writers who have joined him at these ‘drop in’ sessions to perform their work to the invited audience.
The Story of Czech Design - 30 Years of New Identity - Open Friday
Embark on a little journey round the contemporary Czech design world admiring the innovative and often humorous design of everyday objects made from traditional glass, porcelain and wood. The Czech Centre London opens its doors to emblematic design pieces which map the last three decades of modern Czech design from the 1989 Velvet Revolution to the work of young, emerging designers. Don't miss the Czech designers who are well known to the British public and art collectors such as Maxim Velčovský with his Little Joseph candle holder and Rony Plesl, who will also be exhibiting at the V&A in September during the London Design Festival.
Encompassing artist film, an evolving installation and a programme of talks and workshops, the programme reflects on different ways of living and how new knowledge can emerge from struggles against current ecopolitical challenges. Featuring the work of artists Marwa Arsanios, Paloma Polo, Lorenzo Sandoval and They Are Here
