Community – Art – Covid: Reflecting on Community-Engaged Art during the Pandemic 

, , ,

Friday 11 March, 2-4pm, Kensington – available in-person and online

From homemade rainbows in front windows, vibrant street art murals and memorial walls, to community galleries offering periodic respite during the pandemic, the last two years have seen an outpouring of artistic responses to Covid-19 in communities across the capital.

Visual tributes to NHS staff and frontline workers and fundraiser Captain Sir Tom Moore provided resilience, community cohesion, and wellness in our day-to-day lives, helping us to process our lives individually and allowing us to come together collectively. They have also documented the personal and political reflections on the pandemic, and reflect changing and variable understandings of what it means to live together through crisis.

Come and explore the impact of community-engaged art during the pandemic by joining our roundtable discussion with a distinguished panel of experts either in person (at our Kensington campus facility) or online on Friday 11 March, 2-4pm:

  • Veronique Belinga, Museum of the Home
  • Charlotte Bonham-Carter, Central Saint Martins
  • Elizabeth Mayclough, Red Door Studios
