an international festival of expanded choreography initiated and curated by H2DANCE

Collective Drawing — Part 2

Sat 8 JUN, 12—3pm
APT Gallery
Back room
6 Creekside
London SE8 4SA

Join us for an activist drawing score, a communal drawing and painting experience to create a large artwork to be hung in the gallery on Saturday.

Hosted on an expansive canvas and as part of the Fest en Fest choreography festival, this collaborative drawing workshop explores the interplay between individual and collective actions. It traces the reverberations of dance and performance practices within a context profoundly affected by funding cuts in the arts.
