As part of London College of Communication’s ongoing support to our cultural neighbours, we’re featuring a weekly round-up of some of the activities and content provided by the fantastic museums, galleries and cultural venues in our local area.
From online events like Instagram drawing clubs and virtual exhibitions to physical activities like performances and screenings, here’s our guide to what you can get involved in with our Southwark and Lambeth friends and partners both online and in person.
Week starting: 12 October 2020
Free Yoga Webinars: Isha Yoga

Pembroke Mini-Maestros: Pembroke House
For parents, babies and toddlers aged 4 and below, this group will get you off the couch and singing, moving and grooving in a fun-filled 40 minutes of music-making. All you need is a computer or tablet with a webcam and sound, a cuddly toy (or 10) and a musical instrument (a saucepan and spoon will do). The group takes place over zoom - if you need any help let us know.
Every Wednesday at 2pm
Creative Network – Art and Science: Voluntary Arts
In March, Voluntary Arts launched #CreativeNetwork - a series of online get-togethers open to anyone involved in arts, culture and creativity in order to connect and collaborate in unusual times. Facilitating these conversations has enabled people from across the UK and Ireland to talk with others, develop ideas and projects, and find sustainable ways forward in changing circumstances.
Tuesday 13 October 9.30-10.30am
Reset - Alberta Whittle, Film Screening: Frieze Artist Award 2020: Forma Arts and Media
Supported by Forma, the Frieze Artist Award presents a major opportunity for an emerging international artist to debut an ambitious new commission for Frieze London. Whittle’s creative practice is motivated by the desire to manifest self-compassion and collective care as key methods in battling anti-blackness.
Screen timings available daily between Friday 9 and Friday 16 October
Artist Advice Surgeries Are Back: The Albany
Are you creating or leading your first project? Are you applying for funding for the first or second time? Are you hoping to engage with communities and not sure where to start? Are you trying to work out how to adapt something to Covid-19 restrictions?
We offer 45-minute advice surgery for artists. Artist Advice Surgeries are usually held in person, but due to current restrictions this is a Zoom/telephone offer for October and November sessions.
Starting Thursday 29 October
To suggest an online activity organised by a venue local to LCC for inclusion in this weekly Canvas feature, please email: Gill Henderson, Cultural and Communities Partnerships Manager: email@example.com.
