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. On Wednesday 8 July we ran a Listen and Draw fundraising event to support The Black Curriculum in collaboration with actor and performer Kage Douglas who modeled and spoke about his experience as a gay black man.
The session was very powerful- difficult- but ultimately cathartic in many ways. Hugh thanks to Kage for an incredibly moving and raw dialogue and for sharing his experience in such a vulnerable way.
Over 100 participants attended and we have raised over £950 for 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.
With the permission of Kage we are making the recording of this session available for those who weren’t able to be there
50% of the proceeds from recording sales will be donated to The Black Curriculum, 50% will go to Kage
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.
