In light of recent events in the US and across the world surrounding race inequality, we at London Drawing feel strongly that reforms in education is one of the keys to real social and political change. We are fundraising to support The Black Curriculum through a Listen and Draw Life Drawing event in collaboration with actor and performer Kage Douglas who will model and speak about his experience as a gay black man.

We invite you to listen and draw with us in a creative exchange – as Kage shares experiences both positive and negative – to consider change and a more balanced future. 

Kage will be paid for his modeling for the event- this will be paid for via the London Drawing Crowdfund

All proceeds from the event will go to The Black Curriculum
The Black Curriculum is a social enterprise founded in 2019 by young people to address the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum.

Wednesday 8 July
6-7pm
Event is via Zoom- log in details will be sent with your ticket confirmation

Tickets are on a donation basis- any donation big or small is welcome!

Thank you so much for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the event!
