Join us for a special session, combining theatre design and life-drawing. Respond to a live model who will step into 'theatre set designs from the V&A collection, projected as backdrops. The two sessions are run by 2B Or Not 2B Collective, a POC-run life-drawing group that focuses on spotlighting and uplifting marginalised bodies.

The first session will be at 11:00 - 11:45 and the second session at 13:00 - 13:45. Materials will be provided, but attendees are welcome to bring their own. Please only use dry materials.

2B Or Not 2B Collective are a POC-run collective based in London, whose focus is to uplift marginalised bodies within the art world. They have worked with a number of institutions and brands from National Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, Kew Gardens, NHS and Lululemon to name a few.
