Children’s workshop in comedy, lead by Laura Lawson of the School of Comedy. There is a clown in each of us. However old, however young, deep inside we all have our own funny. Shyness, lack of confidence, social inhibitions all tarnish our clowns. Except when you’re at school of comedy. Join us for a workshop of ridiculous nonsense and fun.
Say: what makes you laugh, however naughty!
Do: what makes you feel funny, however silly you may look.
Be: however you want. There are no rules.
Learn tricks of the comedy trade, feel brave, be bold, laugh till your belly aches. This promises to be the most unique, inspiring and hilarious hour of your life so far….

A series of beautifully powerful films made by exciting young Black directors about African American artists from this time. For instance, Zawe Ashton directs a film profiling Lorraine O’ Grady an artist whose installations, performances and texts address issues black female subjectivity. Cecile Emeke is profiling artist and author Faith Ringgold whose paintings and quilted narrative pieces show the racial, political and social tensions she experienced as an artist working in Harlem in the 60s and 70s and Andy Mundy-Castle directs a film profiling painter William T. Williams whose work spans five decade. Finally there will be a fourth film directed by esteemed director Kahlil Joseph (known for working with Beyoncé, Sampha, FKA Twigs and many more) who will be focussing on the works of renowned fine art photographer, Roy DeCarava, who was known for documenting lives of African Americans and jazz artists in Harlem. Collectively the films will elegantly portray the lives and works of these incredible artists.
